Watch Toddlers Reenact 2013 Oscar Nominees — Even ‘Django Unchained’
The 2013 Oscars ceremony is just days away, so if you haven’t seen all the nominated films at this point, that might be one goal left unfulfilled. However, you don’t really need to see them in their entirety to understand what goes on. That’s where a hysterical group of toddlers steps in to give you the run down on the nominated films…well, actually just ‘Zero Dark Thirty,’ ‘Argo,’ ‘Lincoln,’ ‘Beasts of the Southern Wild‘ and ‘Django Unchained.’
While folks like Daniel Day-Lewis, Anne Hathaway, Ben Affleck and the like will probably be honored this Sunday during the Oscars, the real performances of the year come from Adam, Ben, Gianna, Hayden, Connor, Wildyn and Aniyah. Who are they? A troupe of child actors who’ve starred in child (and extremely reduced) versions of some 2013 Oscar-nominated films.
While a lot of the movies like ‘Life of Pi‘ and ‘Silver Linings Playbook’ were left out, the reenactment, released through Buzzfeed, highlights what ‘Lincoln,’ ‘Argo,’ ‘Beasts of the Southern Wild’ and even ‘Django Unchained’ are all about — Daniel Day-Lewis, ’70s clothes, perseverance and cussing, respectively.
Check out these kids playing some of this year’s Oscar-nominated performances below, and it’s awesome because they don’t know what the heck these movies are really about.
