Home Entertainment Presents Academy Awards Animation Collection 15 Winners - This is a very exclusive club and each of the 15 ‘toons in this multi-studio compilation has won filmdom’s top prize. ]]> .com ---- The Oscar for Animated Short Film has been a useful if not entirely accurate gauge of the state of American animation, as this three-disc set demonstrates. The Academy created the category in the early '30s to honor Walt Disney's contributions to the art form. But most of the films in the collection date from the '40s and '50s, when Warner Bros. and MGM artists won most of the Oscars for pushing the Hollywood cartoon in a new direction that was fast-paced, violent, and very, very funny. Many of these cartoons remain hilarious, decades after they were released: "Birds Anonymous," "For Scent-imental Reasons," "Blitz Wolf," and "High Note." Others have aged less gracefully. Changes in racial attitudes have reduced Speedy Gonzales and Mammy Two-Shoes in the Tom and Jerry shorts to uncomfortable reminders of a less respectful era in American history. The collection also demonstrates that the Academy voters' taste can be capricious at best. Many of the best Warners shorts--"A Mouse Divided," "What's Opera, Doc?" "Duck Amuck," "Rabbit of Seville" and "One Froggy Evening"--weren't even nominated. Tex Avery, who did more than any other director to move cartoons in that brash, funny direction, is represented only by "Blitz Wolf" and "Little Johnny Jet." Like Cary Grant and Marilyn Monroe, Avery never won an Oscar. Most of the transfers were made from first-rate prints, although a few are missing their credits and the framing of the Cinemascope films is problematic. The rarest item in the collection is "So Much for So Little," an animated documentary that earned Chuck Jones his first Academy Award. Extras include commentaries by animators and historians, and the interesting new documentary, Drawn for Glory.
