Star Wars: The Force Awakens was obviously one of the greatest movies of 2015, but it has very little to show in the way of Academy Award nominations (aside from a few well-deserved technical nods). So we got to thinking: how can we get the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences to send a little more of its love to a galaxy far, far away?
The answer, of course, is that it’s impossible, because the nominations are settled and AMPAS isn’t exactly known for its tendency to seriously reconsider its nomination practices in the face of public pressure. Ahem.
But then we thought “what the hell?” and made a bunch of Star Wars posters in the style of Oscar-nominated prestige pics anyway.
Check out the poster mashups below and see if you can figure out the original film. Was BB-8 stuck on a planet without hope of rescue with only his wits, a couple of potatoes, and a collection of disco tapes? Or maybe that’s someone else that we’re thinking about in an orange outfit. I’m fairly sure that Kylo Ren got caught in a snow storm with seven other strangers to find out who was really a Jedi. And honestly, just look at the Poe poster. Harvey Weinstein would be proud.
There are still so many other movies out there that could use a little round droid or a brooding Kylo Ren in the background. Let us know in the comment section what would be your favorite Star Wars mashup.
