Watch Kids Reenact the 2014 Oscar Nominees, Including ’12 Years a Slave’
If you haven’t seen any of the 2014 Oscar-nominated films, like ‘American Hustle‘ or ‘12 Years a Slave,’ have no fear. The folks at CineFix and Mom.me and their talented kid performers have come together to reenact the most praised films of the past year … except for ‘Philomena.’ Seems like no one has seen ‘Philomena.’ (Joking … sort of.)
Remember last year when kids reenacted a scene from Quentin Tarantino‘s bloody ‘Django Unchained‘ to hilarious effect? Well, just think of what the same approach to ‘12 Years a Slave‘ might look like. (Actually, not as controversial as you might think.)
Among the reenactments this time around are ‘Captain Phillips,’ ‘Her,’ ‘American Hustle,’ ‘The Wolf of Wall Street,’ ‘Gravity,’ ’12 Years a Slave,’ ‘Nebraska‘ and ‘Dallas Buyers Club.’ Though, funny enough, ‘Philomena,’ an Oscar contender with much praise but little campaign juice was comedically left off the list since chances are the majority of the mainstreamers haven’t seen it nor do they know what this Judi Dench-led film is about.
The 2014 Oscars screens live on March 2 on ABC and will be hosted by Ellen DeGeneres. Until then, catch up with the nominees (again, except for ‘Philomena’) with these hilarious movie breakdowns.
