Watch: Children Reenact 2013 Oscar Nominees
From “Lincoln” to “Zero Dark Thirty,” relive some of this year’s nominated films with these pint-sized reenactments.
All season long, youth has been dominating the awards circuit -- from the red carpet to multiple wins by Jennifer Lawrence. Come Sunday, Beasts of the Southern Wild star Quvenzhané Wallis, 9 ,could make Oscar history if she takes home the prize for Best Actress.
Now, the folks over at Official Comedy have paired up with Landline TV and some adorable young actors to reenact some of this year’s biggest nominees.
According to Landline TV’s Jared Neumark, the kids were naturals at ad-libbing.
“They did a little bit of ad-lib in the Argo one,” he told Buzzfeed this week. “The line is ‘Did people really dress like this in the ‘70s?’ and they were just answering how they wanted to . . . They’ll say lines wrong and we’ll keep that. We have the text of what they’re saying at the bottom of the screen.”
The mini reenactment video comes just over a month after a group of kid models recreated some of the Golden Globe Awards’ best-dressed stars for a photo shoot.
“The kids just love it. They have so much fun,” Tricia Messeroux of Toddlewood told Celebuzz back in January. “It’s like a play date for them and they have a ball.”
The 85th Academy Awards will be handed out on Sunday in Los Angeles.
Check out the video, above, for some of this year’s nominated films, as reenacted by kids.
