This is How You Celebrate an Oscar Nomination

'Walk, Run, Cha-Cha' nominated for Best Documentary Short Subject.

The short documentary Walk, Run, Cha-Cha, directed by Laura Nix, tells the story of Chipaul and Millie Cao, who reunited in 1980s Los Angeles after being separated by the Vietnam War. Forty years later, they become ballroom dancers to reconnect again and make up for lost time. The 20-minute documentary, which premiered on New York Times' Op-Docs, was just nominated for an Academy Award for Best Documentary Short Subject.

Like many Oscar hopefuls, the team behind Walk, Run, Cha-Cha were gathered early on Monday morning -- presumably in what looks like the Caos' living room -- to see if their film was among this year's nominees. Here's the video of their joyous reaction when they heard the announcement.

Congratulations to Laura Nix and Co. It's a wonderful little film and it deserves the recognition. Here's hoping that we get to see Chipaul and Millie Cao make some moves across the stage on Oscar night.
