The Oscar-nominated animated short, “My Year Of Dicks”, which has been created by Disney’s FX Production, is going to be released on Hulu on Friday, 17th February 2023. The move is being made to give the short some increased visibility ahead of the final week of Oscar voting, which begins on March 2nd and runs through to March 7th.
The animated short is based on a chapter of Pamela Ribon’s memoir “Notes to Boys (And Other Things I Shouldn’t Share in Public)”, which follows a 15-year-old Pam on a comedic journey to find the right boy to lose her virginity to. The short is split into five chapters, with each following the story of a different crush with a different style of animation. Pamela Ribon was the writer behind Disney’s animated hits, including “Moana” and “Ralph Breaks the Internet”.
The short is set in 1991, and Pam is trying very hard to lose her virginity, but it sure doesn’t match up to her fantasies. Always searching for her ultimate paramour, this old soul swimming in new puberty will struggle between the real world and her grandiose fantasies by exploring a relatable variety of boys of yore– goths, skaters, indie film snobs, straight edge poseurs– all while trying her best to avoid being grounded. Luckily, she has her best friends by her side, who’d like to keep her from cementing a mistake.
“My Year of Dicks” is executive produced by Ribon, Sara Gunnarsdóttir (The Diary of a Teenage Girl, The Case Against Adnan Syed) and Jeanette Jeanenne (Meddington Hills, Drone), and it marks FX Productions’ first-ever Oscar nomination. The short features the vocal talent of Brie Tilton, Jackson Kelly, Klarissa Hernandez, Laura House and Chris Kelman.
