And the Hulie goes to....
Save The Children!
Terje Rangnes' thought-provoking creation is a masterpiece of drama. Amazingly, this is his short film debut. Our views of the children in question shifts a couple of times throughout the course of the six minute film, and every time we're about to let our chuckles ratchet up to an outright laugh, something else happens to throw us off of our guard.
Unfortunately, we were unable to get an acceptance speech from Mr. Rangnes, due to some cross-continental communications problems, but we are sure that he's cleared a space on his mantelpiece for his Hulie.
After 20,000 audience votes, the audience favorite was "The Rip-off," with a definitive 79% of the vote. The director of this excellent short is Mr. Kun Chang, a friend of the Hulu Review. Kun wrote us that he was "excited" about the distinction, and you can read more about his past and current projects on his site, here.
The other nominees were "One Down," Evol," and "Happy."
