The Oscars are this Sunday, and I for one am woefully unprepared to make my picks in the annual bet I have with my friends. I have seen almost literally none of the films nominated this year, and I only have a few days left to get caught up if I’m going to stand a chance at winning the coveted prize of lunch at the local Chinese buffet. Thankfully, the tiny folks at Copycat Kidz have put together a highlight reel of sorts to cover the major players in this year’s Academy Awards.
“Sweding” a movie is when you remake scenes from that movie with regular people and usually terrible props and costumes. The process is made all the more adorable by using children to replace adult actors. Take a few minutes to watch kids recreate scenes from Argo, Life of Pi, Amour, Zero Dark Thirty, Les Miserables, Beasts of the Southern Wild, Django Unchained, Lincoln, and Silver Linings Playbook.
I feel a lot more confident about my ability to win the Oscar pool this year, and that’s good because the Chinese buffet just remodeled. All my friends are going down.
