Most of the attention at the Oscars goes to just a few categories like best film or best actress, but some of the most innovative nominees can be found in the shorts sections. This year a particularly lovely and clever short called “Adam and Dog” by Minkyu Lee imagines the origin, not just of man, but of man and his best friend. Yes, it’s that Adam…and a dog.

In a retelling of Christianity’s first people, Adam and Eve, before man met the first woman, he met a dog. We won’t say more than that. Except that you can watch it right now. Lucky you! Certainly not all Oscar nominated films are available to watch online for free, but i-flicks found the animated nominees, all available to watch with one click.

On top of a touching and heartbreaking story, the animation in “Adam and Dog” is so beautiful, we wish each frame and each imagined landscape was a painting we could hang on our wall. While there are many great contenders for this years Oscar, we’d put our money on this one.

Watch it below.
