We Placed Bets On The 5 Best Short Films In The Academy Awards
The 95th Academy Awards short film nominations are in, and we decided to make it a game between the members of the morning show.
Everyone threw in a dollar to make the game interesting. One at a time, each member of the show drew a piece of paper out of a hat.
The slips of paper had the film each member of the show would represent. Whichever animation wins "Best Short Film" in the academy awards, that morning show member will win all the money in the pot... Which is $5...
None of us have watched any of the short films, so we are all in for a surprise. Scroll down to see what films we received.
