This year, Sony Pictures Animation broke Disney and Pixar’s iron grip on the Best Animated Feature category at the Oscars, and next year, they’re making a strong bid for the Best Animated Shorts category as well. The animation company behind last year’s Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse has just released one of its most moving and heartwarming animated shorts online, presumably to drum up some support for an Oscar campaign in the most crowded animated shorts year ever.
Hair Love, directed by Matthew Cherry, tells the story of a father learning to do his daughter’s hair for the first time in a short comedy film that gives way to unexpected melancholy. You can watch the entirety of Hair Love below.
