Some sobering news that you may or may not have already realized: Every movie ever made is eligible to be re-released in 3-D. Literally, guys. Every single one. And why not?
If it made good money the first time, imagine how much money it's going to make when you and your friends are all wearing the same plastic glasses foolishly trying to touch the screen at the same time! Or if it didn't make good money the first time, why, maybe it just needed you and your friends wearing the same plastic glasses foolishly trying to touch the screen at the same time! The sad fact is that cash rules everything around us. Dolla dolla billz, y'all.
We've been bombarded with Oscar mania for the better part of three-ish months now, and it's getting to the point where it's hard to distinguish one Oscar contender from another. To keep from defaulting to exhausted apathy when it comes to the 85th Annual Academy Awards, we feel a fresh perspective on this year's Oscar nominees is in order ... for which a good old-fashioned face swap is just the ticket.
We apologize in advance if these re-imaginings by our own Dustin Glick make for nightmare fodder. Sometimes looking at something in a new light isn't exactly pretty.

Okay folks, it's crunch time. Have you submitted your Oscar ballot yet? There's big money on the line (at least a hundy we hope, right?).
As we do every year on NextMovie, we're handicapping the Oscar races to give you a leg up on your friends, family and coworkers when entering your high-stakes pool, which as we all know is as much about the glory as the greenbacks (freaking Al from finance still hasn't gotten that smirk off of his face for calling Cotillard over Christie in 2008; get over yourself, Al).
Our usual disclaimers: We do not condone gambling, unless you're in Vegas or on a reservation. Good luck!
(And for a trusty second opinion, check out Joe Reid's Oscar predictions on Film.com.)
The day is only (quick math) 1,440 minutes long, so maybe you can't spare 27 of them to watch the trailer for every single Best Picture-nominated film. And we get it! You're a busy (man; woman; eunuch)! Get More »
Last year we released the hounds. This year we're bringing the entire animal kingdom.
You may remember (fondly, of course) our dog-themed poster spoofs of last year's Oscar nominees. We're expanding our horizons this year for some cross-species variations on "Argo," "Les Miserables," "Zero Dark Thirty" and the six other films vying for the golden Best Picture statue that, until now, featured mostly two-legged cast members. (There's a distinct lack of an attention-stealing Uggie this year, isn't there?)
Check out what's playing below, courtesy of Old Red Jalopy. Once again, most of them look even more interesting than their homo sapien-driven counterparts.
What do you get when the saddest movie of the year meets the greatest geriatric comedy of the '80s? This brilliant mashup from Film.com, obviously.
The Best Picture Oscar nominee most likely to drive you to suicide — "Amour" — and "Golden Girls": two great tastes that taste hilarious together.
In an Oscar season filled with glad-handing, Oprah Winfrey specials, and the ever-insincere "It's a thrill just to be nominated," isn't it about time we got a little honesty amid the roiling sea of industry platitudes?
Oscar might be the word of the day, but for some folks, their own names were what rung loudest and proudest during this morning's 2013 Academy Award nominations read-out. Sure, some of them were just as baffled by some of the snubs as the vociferous folks of the Twitterverse, but they couldn't complain too much because, hey, they just got a chance at the most elite prize in the biz.
So, in the day's spirit of actors and such talking about actors and such, we've gathered here the nominees' various reactions to this year's nods. You can probably read between the lines on a few of these.
Jennifer Lawrence, "Silver Linings Playbook": "I'm so honored and grateful for this nomination and to be in the company of such talented actresses. Having the fortunate opportunity to work with David O. Russell was an extraordinary gift and I am so thrilled for my fellow cast members Bradley Cooper, Robert De Niro and Jacki Weaver who are all nothing short of amazing. This was a labor of love that we all poured our hearts into and could not be more thankful to The Weinstein Company and Harvey Weinstein for their unyielding support of the film" (ET Online).
