Wouldn’t it be cute if young, adorable kids were in all the Oscar nominated movies?
Well, that’s already true of Oscar nominee Beasts of the Southern Wild ― but that didn’t stop Official Comedy from parodying it along with several other nominees in their recurring series featuring angel-faced tykes taking on the dark and very adult material in the Best Picture nominees.
The Zero Dark Thirty sketch would be infinitely better with a red wig to match Jessica Chastain’s locks, while the Argo one is a little funnier. Kids doing Tarantino is inherently funny (censored out, of course) and Lincoln is livened by a Sally Field-inspired cameo in a “crazy” dress.
The funniest moment comes in the Beasts sketch: “What’s that?” “Pigs!” (You have to have seen the movie to get it.)
We’re hoping the rest of the nominees are on the way in a second video.
Which parody did you think was best?
