The Oscars are this weekend, and we’re going to be paying super close attention because it’s one of the biggest pop culture events of the year (and because our boss told us to).
But since we’re the kind of people who have to make fun of everything, we’re starting with this “Honest Trailers” roundup of the Best Picture nominees from our friends at Screen Junkies.
“In a world where a bunch of rich people dress up in fancy clothes to give each other trophies, these eight films will compete for Hollywood’s highest honor: being the answer to the question, ‘What did win the Oscar last year?’”
To refresh your memory, the nominees are “The Big Short” (“I would be so outraged right now if I understood what the hell was going on!”), “Mad Max: Fury Road” (“the most badass nominee for best picture since ever”), “The Revenant” (“long story short, Leo grunts his way to an Oscar”), “Spotlight” (“Newsies: Might Want To Avoid These Houses”), “Bridge of Spies” (“when you’re Steven Spielberg and Tom Hanks, even your average movies get nominated for Best Picture by default”), “The Martian” (basically “Castaway in Space”), “Brooklyn” (“I’ll be honest, I haven’t seen ‘Brooklyn’ and neither have you”), and “Room” (not to be confused with “The Room”).
Who will win? We'll be tuning in on Sunday to find out! Because it's mandatory!
