With awards season in full swing, your timeline is probably abuzz with talk about the heavy-hitters for this year’s coveted “Best Picture” award. Oscars nominations have yet to be announced officially, but there’s already considerable speculation about the most likely contenders. From The Shape of Water to Call Me By Your Name, there’s some pretty stiff competition for that iconic golden statue.
However, it’s always somewhat cathartic to poke fun at this formal and honestly absurd ritual and give the purported “best” pictures of the year some well-intentioned ribbing.
Here are some tweets to remind everyone that the most mind-blowing movies of the year can certainly withstand being knocked down a peg.
