Honest Trailers runs through the 2017 Oscars’ Best Picture nominees


The Oscars are this weekend, which means everyone gets to complain about the Academy letting them down in some way. This is an annual tradition. It’s like getting into an argument with your dad around Christmas, or getting too drunk on New Year’s Eve to remember what you did between 1:00am and 6:00am but somehow you always wind up hungover in bed with a half-eaten bodega sandwich.

We already shared Seth Meyers’ take on awards season films, so we might as well offer an actual look at the Best Picture nominees.

Honest Trailers did a brief rundown of all the Best Picture noms. Give their take a watch below.
