The Oscars — that special night when Hollywood’s elites come together to celebrate major achievements in this year’s cinema by doling out little golden statues — are rapidly approaching. Naturally, this celebratory evening is in every comedian’s crosshairs, and Screen Junkies has skewered the upcoming the award ceremony in their latest Honest Trailer.
The video focuses on the night’s Best Picture nominees, breaking them down based on factors like story, what the trailers really say about the movie and how many people actually went out to a theater and saw said movie.
The video pulls no punches with the nine nominees: “Arrival,” “Fences,” “Hacksaw Ridge,” “Hell or High Water,” “Hidden Figures,” “La La Land,” “Lion,” “Manchester by Sea” and “Moonlight.” The Honest Trailer offers alternate titles for each, like “Manchesta by the Feckin’ Sea” for Kenneth Lonergan’s Boston-based family drama “Manchester by the Sea” and “War and Pieces” for Mel Gibson’s gory war epic “Hacksaw Ridge.”
The 89th Academy Awards will air at 7 pm EST on Sunday, February 26 on ABC. This year’s show will be hosted by Jimmy Kimmel.
