Ahead of the Oscars this Sunday, here’s some fun Academy Award trivia for you that’s being shared across Reddit.
Can you name the shortest Oscar nominee? While “Gravity” may be one of the shortest nominations for Best Picture, that title goes to 2013 Academy Award nominee “Fresh Guacamole” at just 100 seconds long.
The short film, by director PES, didn’t win the Oscar — that honour went to Disney’s “Paperman” — but if you’ve never seen it, it’s fantastic.
The film uses stop motion to show how a bowl of guacamole is made. The kicker is that different objects are used in place of ingredients which transform into other items when they are sliced and diced.
Here are some of the transformations that take place.

… before becoming even smaller dice.
According to the BBC, the short took four months to put together.
In case you’re wondering, the longest movie to ever be nominated for — and win — an Academy Award is “Gone with the Wind” at 238 minutes.
The shortest film to ever win the Oscar Best Picture is 1955 film “Marty” at 90 minutes.
So even if “Gravity” does pull out a win Sunday night, at 91 mins., it will not take that record.
