Watch: 4-Minute Supercut Celebrates The 2016 Best Picture Oscar Nominees

While the #OscarsSoWhite issue has taken focus in film world these past couple of weeks, with comments from both sides of the argument taking center stage (most recently, Charlotte Rampling), the show must inevitably go on. One of the eight nominated films is going to take home the Best Picture Academy Award despite the controversy.

While your favorite film may not have made the list (“Carol,” we still don’t understand), there are a bevy to choose from hailing from a variety of genres — action-packed magic hours in “The Revenant,” a colossal journalistic undertaking in “Spotlight,” the resurgence of a renegade hero in “Mad Max: Fury Road,” and a dreamy, technicolor period piece in “Brooklyn” among others.

In this new video supercut, Jacob T. Swinney pieces together the eight nominees, showcasing some of their best, and perhaps underlooked, moments.

Whatever film you’re rooting for, we hope it made the cut. Take a look at the video below and let us know who you’re rooting for in the comments.

That Brooklyn and The Room both received Best Picture nominations and the truly excellent Creed did not, is quite frankly, ridiculous. The omission clearly speaks to the age and background of the majority of the voting panel. However, once you begin to appreciate the role of Hollywood as a huge propaganda machine, the issue as concerns a lack of representation, inclusiveness and diversity, becomes a lot clearer. As well, you begin to fully appreciate that other factors are attendant in the decision of which movie to garner with acknowledgement, separate from any real objective assessment of a film’s artistic merit.

This issue will never get better where lack of diversity is unrespected. It’s not about blacks only but ethnics in general. I don’t think Jada was referring to blacks but in general. If you make up 100 films in a year for instance and you’re not recognised then what sort of thing is that? Boycotting is a bad idea as a brown person but at the same time she proves no wrong. This brings more issues.

Thank you!


Whatever is the case 2016 is going backward each year. I’m not surprised this is issue that keeps to repeat in itself. Nothing seems to work better than worse.
