I can speak only for myself here, but I know exactly what I will doing on Sunday evening. I'll be sitting in my living room glued to my television as I watch all the coverage I can consume of the Academy Awards. I look forward to the glitz and the glamour sometimes as much as I anticipate who will take home the Oscars.
And, maybe, just like me, you didn't get a chance to watch all the nominated films. Luckily for us, we can catch up with a new YouTube video that does not feature all of those famous Oscar-nominated actors but replaces them with adorable children 6 years of age or younger.
If you missed "Zero Dark Thirty," no problem -- you can catch a re-enactment at the beginning of "Kids Oscars"; there's a kiddie version of it. Haven't had a chance to see "Argo," either? That's been re-imagined, too, in a more compact version.
The video also features adapted scenes from "Beasts of the Southern Wild," "Django Unchained," and "Lincoln." The kiddie versions actually do a fair job of summing up what a lot of people are saying about the movies. The video was created by Jared Neumark of Landline TV, a New York-based comedy video-production company.
With more than 17,000 views so far, the video is gaining steam and popularity. One commenter has a great idea, writing, "I would invite these kids to the ceremony this weekend." I second that. These kids are solid, and now I feel like I'm clued in more on the movies.
