If The Posters For Oscar-Nominated Movies Were Honest

This year’s Oscar nominations are in, which means another year of drinking games, Twitter cattiness, even more Twitter cattiness, and photoshopping the Oscar-nominated movies’ posters to reflect what the average person thinks about the Oscar bait contained therein. All of the modified posters below are for films nominated in the screenplay, acting, best film, or other Academy Award categories (full list of nominees here). These photoshops come from The Shiznit and from frequent Frotcast guest Justin Halpern, @notzombies, and @PMSchumacker.

Our favorites start on the next page, and you can view the rest at The Shiznit and These Fries Are Good.
