If 2018's Oscar-nominated movie posters told the truth

If 2018's Oscar-nominated movie posters told the truth
It's been a trying year. The very nature of truth has come under threat. Honesty is a rare commodity. Transparency in power is non-existent. Maybe, just maybe, if the posters for Hollywood's most fancied Oscar movies started telling the truth, others would follow suit. Retweet and share this on Facebook 100 times if you want Donald Trump impeached and maybe we can make a real difference, starting with my Google AdSense income.

The mainstream media is full of fake news. Hollywood is full of failing celebs, who don't even know me. If the big movies this Oscar season, which I hear are very overrated, told the truth, they'd look like this. Sad!

If 2016's Oscar-nominated movie posters told the truth

If 2016's Oscar-nominated movie posters told the truth
It's a particularly open race at this year's Oscars, which is interesting, so interesting, so incredibly interesting. Could this film win? But what about that film? Does this actor deserve a nomination? Should that actress have lobbied for Lead instead of Supporting? All of these are words that people say that have absolutely no bearing on these stupid posters that I made. Enjoy them by looking at them and forwarding them to your nan.

Shut up everyone, the Oscar nominations have been announced! No one cares about your new haircut, Janice! As is customary around these parts, it's impossible for us to comment on a news item without making some sort of crudely Photoshopped picture, so we decided to make new posters for the nominees that tell you what you can really expect.

If 2014's Oscar-nominated movie posters told the truth

As soon as I heard today's announcements for the 2014 Academy Awards, I opened up Photoshop and whipped up these 15 mildly amusing honest poster alternatives in five minutes flat, because I'm just that talented. Seriously. These didn't take a month, no matter what you've heard. Off the cuff humour, each and every one. And that's the truth.

If 2013's Oscar-nominated movie posters told the truth

Have we all processed the 2013 Oscar nominations yet? Still fuming about Paul Thomas Anderson's snub? Furious that Skyfall didn't get a Best Picture nod? Sarcasm is what you need. Lovely, sneering sarcasm. Here's what this year's Oscar-nominated movies' posters would say if they could be honest just for one goddamn minute.

What if the rest of 2012's movie posters told the truth?

And to think, the movies we didn't already zing OUTRAGEOUSLY earlier in the year thought they'd gotten away with it. No one avoids the carpet bombing of Photoshop truth. Especially not you, Magic Mike.

It's been at about five months since our last lot of truthful movie posters. This latest batch of one-sheets thought they could get away with bullshitting us. They didn't reckon on ALL MY FREE TIME.

Truthified posters for the two Oscar-nominated pics we missed earlier this week - because we're nothing if not completists.

It's that time of year again: the Oscar nominations are in, and the chatter has begun. Who will fail to beat George Clooney and Meryl Streep this time? In the interests of transparency, we've shopped the posters for this awards season's biggest movies so they're a little more honest about their content. Pretend this is the first time we've done it.
