Paperman Wins Best Animated Short Film

Paul Rudd and Melissa McCarthy introduced the Academy Award for Best Animated Short Film. 

The winner is everyone's choice, Paperman, by Pixar.

Paul Rudd and Melissa McCarthy's introduction skit was short, and they tried to pull it off, but it just didn't work for me.

How likely are you to make Mic your go-to news source?

I am interested in issues regarding First Amendment rights, particularly free speech, freedom of the press and the interactions between secularism and religion in the modern world. I approach a lot of issues from a progressive viewpoint and try to steer clear of the "political party" divides which are often inflexible regardless of context. For that reason, I don't gravitate towards articles that have Democrats vs. Republicans as one of the main points. I am a recent college graduate from Harvard University (Class of 2011) with a concentration in Organismic and Evolutionary Biology. My desired profession is science research in genetics, which of course means that I'm interested in science and science policy as well.
