The name for the Academy Award for Live Action Short Movie was presented in 1974. For the 3 preceding years it was referred to as “Short Subjects, Live Action Films”. The term “Short Subjects, Live Action Films” was used from 1957 up until 1970. From 1936 up until 1956 there were 2 separate awards, “Best Short Topic, One-reel” and “Best Short Subject, Two-reel”.
When it concerns the Oscars, the Academy increasingly safeguards its meaning of movies as a theatrical experience, disqualifying those that debut on home video or VOD from consideration in all the function categories. For many years, the Short films were the exception, though in a delighted twist, in spite of the reality that the majority of have actually been seen solely at celebrations prior to nominations, they now delight in a healthy theatrical follow the reality thanks to the efforts of all-shorts-all-the-time network ShortsHD. This year’s live-action offerings are uncommonly strong throughout the board, with nary an English-language one among them.
