PanARMENIAN.Net - The animated short movie "Burrow" directed by American filmmaker and screenwriter of Armenian descent Madeline Sharafian and produced by Pixar Animation Studios has been nominated for an Academy Award.

"Burrow" is about a rabbit looking to create the underground home of her dreams. The film debuted with "Soul" and is the third Pixar short to be hand-drawn, including "Day & Night" and "Kitbull".

Sharafian has been nominated for two Annie Awards for her storyboarding on "We Bare Bears" and "Coco".

The 93rd Academy Awards ceremony will take place on April 25, 2021, two months later than originally planned, due to the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic on cinema.
