The BBC is reporting that a Commercial Director who goes by the name of “Pez” has made Oscar history for having the shortest film ever nominated for an Oscar. At 1 minute and 40 seconds the film “Fresh Guacamole” is about aptly enough, making a bowl of guacamole. Done with stop motion and object replacement, Pez films himself opening up grenades and scooping out guacamole from them as well as slicing baseballs and having them turn into dice. A strange little film and I’m not sure why it’s been nominated above being clever. I thought all Oscar worthy films had to be about crack babys, homeless people or the plight of the common man. This is just… cooking. You learn something every day.
