Video: The Trailer for an Ideal Contender for the Academy Awards
American comedian and TV host Seth Meyers created a parody trailer for a non-existent movie called Oscar Bait, which according to him could have been an ideal contender for the prestigious cinematography award.
The video mocks numerous stereotypical themes and techniques, typical for movies that are nominated for the award every year: racism, homophobia, grave illness of the protagonist, loneliness and others. The video was watched by over half a million people in three days.
“When it comes to making an attempt to win an Oscar, Meyer’s fake film checks off all the boxes,” Indiewire writes.
