Los Angeles (February 17, 2015) - A comedic twist on the 2015 Oscar season, and just in time for the Academy Awards this Sunday! A new musical parody of this year’s Best Picture nominees from Jay Flats, Michael Grebe, Dan Martinez and Kevin Brooks.
"Best Picture: The Musical" is a fun tribute to old Hollywood musicals, featuring a medley of all eight films nominated in the category of Best Picture this year. This will be their second year poking fun at the nominees, following their video "Oscar Season: The Musical" in 2014.
With original music by Dan Martinez, the video chronicles each nominated films’ journey to (maybe) taking home the title of Best Picture. Stick-in-your-head lyrics parody everything from American Sniper, (“Thirty pounds! I gained thirty pounds! The Academy rewards that sacrifice!”), to Boyhood, (“From a cute kid to awkward teen, a Truman Show but in real life, how could we lose?”).
