Child Stars

Dallas Buyers Club (And 8 Other Best Picture Oscar Nominees) Performed By Cute Kids

Matthew McConaughey might be picking up an Oscar in a few weeks, but there’s a kid out there that may give him a run for his money in 20 years or so.

Cinefix rounded up the cutest kids they could find, slapped adult wigs and facial hair on them, and had them re-enact scenes from each of this year’s nine films nominated for the Best Picture Oscar.

Of course, we’re partial to the LGBT/AIDS-themed Dallas Buyers Club parody that starts at the three-minute mark, but there are definitely a few chuckles to be had in them all.

The 12 Years A Slave parody is brilliant, Captain Phillips is funny and kind of disturbing, and there was something about the small child with a gigantic curly afro in the American Hustle parody that had us in stitches.

Watch, and remind yourself not to take Oscar season so seriously. These kids certainly aren’t.
