Watch Oscar-winning short ‘Paperman’ online
Should you happen to have six and a half minutes to spare this morning, you’re in for a treat: this year’s Oscar winner for animated short film, “Paperman,” a Disney effort directed by John Kahrs. (If it looks familiar, you’re not dreaming: it screened in theaters in front of “Wreck-It Ralph” late last year.) It’s an old-school dream of a movie, set in a vaguely “Mad Men” era in soft black-and-white, and telling the immortal story of boy-meets-girl, via paper airplanes. Pure pleasure.
