Here’s a cheat sheet for all of this year’s Best Picture nominees

Oscar night is upon us, and we’re kicking ourselves for not having seen every film being honored.

We could easily read the countless reviews, synopses, and thinkpieces about the films or head over to their Wikipedia pages, but Digg has done us one better. It boiled down and summarized 982 minutes of footage across all eight Best Picture nominees into a four-minute recap.

There are spoilers aplenty, but that’s pretty much a given when you’re trying to learn what the Best Picture films are all about.

We all have our opinions about who will come out on top tonight, but we can at least argue a bit more about the films online, along with everything else that’s bound to come up tonight.
