These "More Accurate" Oscar Posters Will Unchain Your Django

By Joanna Robinson | Seriously Random Lists | January 11, 2013 | Comments ()


There's been a lot of talk about who's seen which of the Oscar nominated films. And in this era of Netflix Instant and Amazon Prime, it seems fewer and fewer people are making it out to see movies in the theater. I can't imagine why. But that doesn't mean you have to duck your head in shame or be completely without opinion on Oscar Night. College Humor has helpfully put together a list of posters that more accurately describe the movies you didn't bother to see.










Science Fiction Boops And Blips: "Catching Fire," "The Host," "Godzilla," and "Deadwood" in Space | Tom Cruise, President? Plus a Henry Cavill/Gina Carano Mating & Everything You Already Knew About Lindsay Lohan

Comments Are Welcome, Bigots and Trolls Are Not

    Better candidate for Les Mis:

  • ChucknBuck

    Beasts of the Southern Wild is this year's Crash/Blind Side/The Help, just another way for liberal white folk to fell better about race relations. Let it go already, this movie is horrible and horribly over-rated.

  • PishPosh

    I don't know how someone can sit through this movie and possibly misconstrue that's its central theme is about race relations. I guess that means any film that prominently features black actors must be about race relations.

  • TheOriginalMRod

    I was thinking how unusual it was that a comedy got so many noms. But it was also unusual when a horror film won the top acting awards and the best picture.

    Also director and adapted screenplay...

  • QueeferSutherland

    French Stewart is not in "French"?!? YOU BLEW IT AGAIN, ACADEMY!

  • Jelinas


  • John W


  • Kballs

    College students, you've done it again!!!

    Now somebody de-resin the bowls. I got nothin' but shake and seeds over here . . .

  • Natallica

    Is "Inglourious basterds: slavery edition" actually something bad?

  • Quatermain

    No. If you haven't seen it, you really should.

  • Natallica

    It haven't yet reached my country, it premieres on January 31st. I'm waiting for it MORE than anxiously, I'm a big Tarantino fan

  • PDamian

    Daniel Day-Lewis has two Oscars (There Will Be Blood, My Left Foot). I doubt he's pining for another. A better line would be, "Spielberg finally returns to good form." Also, "Serious film is serious." Or even, "Prestigious film is prestigious."

  • John G.

    That movie would be total shit without Daniel Day-Lewis. I won't give any credit to Spielberg. The movies main failings, in fact, are every scene without Day-Lewis.

    ***The stupid bumbling slapstick lobbyists
    ***the preening congressional scenes that were so filled with soaring score and endless prattle, as if Spielberg thought his audience wouldn't be sure which side of the issue to be on, Oh right, slavery is evil and the slaveowners are bad, right right right.
    ***Any scene with Sally Fields
    ***The horrible opening scene where black soldiers recite the Gettysburg address to Lincoln that almost made me walk out of the movie.

    If Daniel Day-Lewis wasn't elevating this project by his preternatural performance, this would be another fucking War Horse

  • Upstate

    Totally agree. Most of the fault goes to Kushner, who tried to tell 8 stories instead of one, and wound up making them all seem rushed and trivial. Seriously, ToR was the best Lincoln biography and a gold mine of new takes on the "Abraham Lincoln movie". How did they fuck it up so hard?

  • poopnado

    I don't think DDL wants an Oscar as much as the Academy wants to give it to him.

  • John G.


    sooo true!

  • emmelemm

    Hey man, I read that book and I am no one's mom.

  • Littlejon2001

    The Argo fake poster is by far the best.

  • apsutter

    DDL already has an Oscar

  • John G.


  • BendinIntheWind

    There's also a series from The Shiznit - maybe not as funny, but the Red Dawn one definitely got me:

  • Palaeologos

    Those are great! :)

  • duckandcover

    Madea's Big Detective Adventure had me rolling.

    I love the anti-Perez Hilton icon at the end of the article, too.

  • Fabius_Maximus

    Some of them are unnecessarily inaccurate. Haneke is not French, there is not enough shooting in "ZeroDarkThirty" to warrant that fake title, and I think the one for "Lincoln" should say "Daniel Day-Lewis really wanted to play Lincoln".

    The others are fine, though. Made me chuckle, even.

  • Some_guy_with_something_to_say

    Not even close to enough shooting... the raid scene was about 20-30 minutes of a 2 and a half hour film!

    Also hard to call Silver Linings a token nominee when it has the second most nominations and nominees in all 6 major categories (picture, director, plus all four acting awards).

  • John G.

    or at least "another" Oscar, since he has two already.

  • Fabius_Maximus

    That's why I didn't mention it at all. The man isn't out for trophies, and never was. He wants to challenge himself by taking on the most difficult roles he can find. Else he would work more.

  • marigi

    "Token academy award rom-com that won't win". Are we sure?? It's not like it never happened... Let's hope not.

  • Jim Johnson

    Considering how many noms it got, including 4/4 in the acting categories, I wouldn't be shocked if it won. They clearly love it. I'm withholding judgement until I see it.

  • Shakespeare in Love

  • marigi

    You read my mind.

  • emmelemm

    So true, so unbearably true.

  • fracas

    That's true. Titanic won Best Picture. That was a rom-com, right? I laughed a lot.

  • marigi

    Now I'm the one laughing! Thanks! :)

  • Zzzzz


  • theotherone

    If you want that Call of Duty: Alqaeda poster too be truly accurate you would have to drop Chastain for a buffed up or silhouetted shot of Chris Pratt.

    There are no women in Call of Duty games unless they are hostages or dead.

  • phase10

    Every time I saw that trailer, I would think "Was that Andy?". Then my brain would assure me that there's no way he was in that. I don't know if I'll be able to separate him from his character on P&R. He's so brilliant on that show, it'd probably end up watching the movie waiting for the jokes and being disappointed when they don't come.

  • apsutter

    He got super ripped for that movie too. Like sickeningly was hard to accept that it was our little andy

  • the dude

    I just want a spin-off movie of buffed up Chris Pratt, it would be so badass: Chris pratt is agent Bert Maclin, on the hunt for Abu Nazir!!

  • "Ben Affleck thinks we are going to forget Daredevil"
