Maggie Simpson is getting a bit of Oscar buzz this year. The animated baby stars in a short called “Maggie Simpson In: The Longest Daycare” which features “The Simpsons” character in a 4-minute film directed by David Silvermam, who is nominated for an Oscar for the project.
The film features Maggie Simpson in her first day of daycare. She is placed in the “average intelligence” group of babies and ends up going up against her enemy Baby Gerald. Gerald likes to smash butterflies and frames them on the daycare wall. Maggie befriends a little caterpillar and spends her day trying to save it from the butterfly killer. All in all, it’s a pretty stressful day at daycare.
This is the first Oscar nomination “The Simpsons” has received. “Maggie Simpson In: The Longest Daycare” is nominated for the Best Animated Short along with “Adam and Dog,” “Fresh Guacamole,” “Head Over Heels,” and “Paperman.”
