Oscars: Guacamole is the shortest film ever nominated

Help

The Oscars are approaching and one characteristic shared by several of the films up for awards this year is that they are very long, with running times in some cases in excess of 2.5hrs.

But one movie that has been nominated has distinguished itself by its brevity.

It is just 100 seconds long and it has been getting a lot of attention.
