Cartoons: So very statue-esque

The envelopes, please -- or at least the quick sketches on the back of them. Hard to beat Ted Rall's unemployably unemployed for best animated shortchange. And though the Hollywood guilded might disagree, Nate Beeler's beleaguered taxpayer surely deserves a shiny statue for his best financial-support role. I'd give Moshik Lin's brilliantly simple domino concept a best picture award, while worst foreign actor goes to the bullet-spraying Kadafi for his murderous role in the tragedy playing out in the Mideast theater.
