Becoming a new and welcomed tradition, The Shiznit — a UK entertainment website — has released a new batch of "Honest Posters" for the films that received Oscar nominations this year. With stellar photoshop skills and a clever sense of humor, they have altered the posters of a dozen Academy Award-worthy films: La La Land, Manchester By The Sea, Moonlight, Jackie, Silence, Arrival, Loving, Fences, Lion, Hacksaw Ridge, Hidden Figures, and Hell Or High Water.
My personal favorite is the one they did for Arrival. Going into Tuesday's 89th Academy Awards announcement, Amy Adams had been expected to snag a well-deserved Oscar nomination for playing linguist Louise Banks in Denis Villeneuve's thought-provoking sci-fi film. For a moment, it seemed like she had. That's because ABC mistakenly listed Adams as a Best Actress nominee.
So of course The Shiznit took advantage of the Oscar snub by incorporating it into their parody poster. The top tagline reads, "AMY ADAMS HAS MORE CHANCE OF ACTUALLY DISCOVERING ALIEN LIFE THAN WINNING A GODDAMN OSCAR AT THIS POINT." Aside from that, they've change the title of the film to War of the Words and made its main, center tagline: "GOOGLE TRANSLATE CAN'T HELP US NOW."
