2013 Oscar Predictions: Best Live Action Short

Indiewire will provide regular updates of our predictions for the 85th Academy Awards through February 24th, when the winners are announced.

The short film races are always extremely tough to call -- especially now that the entire Academy membership is eligible to vote for them. Though it definitely seems like the general consensus with regard to the live action category is that Shawn Christensen's "Curfew" is deservedly the film to beat here.

Nominees and predictions below. Check out all predictions in all the categories here, and this list of all the Oscar-nominated films available ON DEMAND right now.

The nominees:
"Buzkashi Boys"
"Death of a Shadow"

Will win: "Curfew"
Could win: "Death of a Shadow"
Should win: "Curfew"

Check out all predictions in all the categories here.

    It seems i'm the only person who really has an input on this one, but after seeing all of them, I think Buzkashi Boys has a pretty good chance of taking it... that being said, I liked Curfew better.
