Oscars 2014: 'Mr. Hublot' snags win for animated short

Oscars 2014: 'Mr. Hublot' snags win for animated short

Two first-time nominees have won the Academy Award for animated short film for "Mr. Hublot," about an eccentric character whose orderly world is turned upside down with the arrival of a robotic pet.

From directors Laurent Witz and Alexandre Espigares, the Oscar-winning short chronicles the sweet and funny relationship between a man and his dog -- albeit in a steampunk world.

"Mr. Hublot" beat out four other animated shorts for the Oscar win, including the Mickey Mouse-starring "Get a Horse!" that played before the Disney's box-office giant "Frozen."
