American commercials may not be as adept to getting A-list stars to appear on their commercials like international commercials do – have you seen what they did for The Lego Movie-, but they sure know how to spark some interest through satirizing or parody. Now the film may not be in contention for any awards for 2013, but The Lego Movie‘s success has already made a case for itself to win some major awards in 2015. So while we wait to see if the Academy agrees with us, we will have to settle for this year’s Best Picture nominees in Lego Form.
In a fun and amusing attempt to generate more interest in the Oscars, Yahoo has just released posters for all nine of the Best Picture nominees in Lego form. That’s right, some of those memorable posters you have been seeing for Gravity, Her, 12 Years A Slave, American Hustle, Philomena, Nebraska, Captain Philips, Dallas Buyers Club, and The Wolf Of Wall Street have been recreated to look like those Lego minifigures. Hit the jump to see them all.
As I’ve said, these posters are pretty amusing, especially when they try to turn some human features into Lego form.
Which one is your favorite? Which film do you think will win Best Picture. Tune in to find out, when Ellen Degeneres hosts the Oscars on ABC on March 2 at 5 p.m.
