If you just can’t put in the hours it would require to become a certified expert on all the Oscar-nominated films this year, one YouTube channel has you covered with this helpful supercut of all the nominees in just 2 minutes and 46 seconds.
The supercut really runs the gamut, starting off with the grand, establishing shots of space and time. It then moving into the romance section (kicked off by Stoick and Valka from How to Train Your Dragon 2, of course), before settling into the “everyone is sad” section that takes up most of the rest of the video.
It’s a pretty good reminder that heavy films are the ones that are overwhelmingly represented at the Academy Awards, although there are some glimmers of hope and smiles in the supercut, sandwiched between a lot of anger and tears. At least this video saves you from sobbing in the movie theater surrounded by other people.
