The Oscars: Short films, long dresses

OK, why is the orchestra playing “Thank Heaven For LIttle Girls” when Carey Mulligan and Zoe Saldana enter, to present the short film awards? Zoe’s dress, let it be noted, deserves its very own awards show, and perhaps its own emerging nation. So, did you know that Taylor Hackford won a short film Oscar in 1978? And David Frankel in 1996? And John Lasseter? Maybe I did know that. Best animated short goes to the French film “Logorama,” which, the producer says, took six years to make 16 minutes. Best documentary short: “Music by Prudence,” in which one of the filmmakers seems to rudely interrupt the other to make the acceptance speech. Best live action short: “The New Tenants.” We now pause while everyone’s Oscar ballot, including mine, starts to not look quite so prophetic. (For the record, I’m six for eight.)
