In what’s now become a tradition, The Shiznit recently had some fun with the 2017 Oscars nominations. Though the competition for accolades like Best Picture are undoubtedly fierce, the London-based film website made light of the annual awards with hilariously altered movie posters. Just like in 2015 and 2016, The Shiznit has redesigned a smattering of marketing campaigns to imagine the following: What if Oscar-nominated flicks were “honest” on these banners?
The website’s “truth-telling” strips movie posters of their clever (and often ambiguous) tagline and critic quotes. Instead, they’ve replaced them with the thoughts you might’ve had while seeing these films. Casey Affleck’s critically-acclaimed Manchester By the Sea is renamed Sadfleck, because, let’s face it—he looks really morose in the movie. And in a time when the political climate is topsy-turvy, La La Land is, as The Shiznit has dubbed it, an Escape from Reality.
Have you seen the films nominated for the 2017 Oscars? Do you agree with the “honest” movie posters?
