Web Video: A Trailer For Every Academy Award Winning Movie Ever

Wealthy, Successful Protagonist (Who Is Handsome) seemingly has it all: wealth, success, good looks, a gorgeous metropolitan home, the works. But, as his Insightful Best Friend points out, he doesn't have something to live for that's bigger than himself.

In comes Social Worker, who informs Wealthy, Successful Protagonist that due to various circumstances, he has been assigned custody of Inspirationally Disadvantaged Guy, a Catch Phrase-spewing, mentally handicapped young man whose presence radically changes Wealthy, Successful Protagonist's comfortable status quo.

Things start looking up once Wealthy, Successful Protagonist meets Lead Female, a quirky, daring young woman who rejects social norms by dyeing her hair, and admires him for undertaking this responsibility. The two of them soon start dating, and Wealthy, Successful Protagonist learns to appreciate the positive impact Inspirationally Disadvantaged Guy has on his life, and all seems well.

Then things get... complicated. Aside from dealing with his increasingly-rocky relationship with Lead Female and Inspirationally Disadvantaged Guy's failing health, Wealthy, Successful Protagonist must also confront the machinations of a traitorous associate, inspire a young Latino boy to do well in school, defend an innocent black man in court, fight with the Native American metaphor against the American military metaphor, and help a local high school basketball team win the Big Game.

(Phew!)

The latest cinematic masterpiece from Famous And/Or Foreign Director, Movie Title features an all-star cast including Academy Award-Winning Actor, Academy Award-Winning Actress, Actor Desperately Trying For An Academy Award, Older Actress In A Comeback Attempt, and Beloved Actor Who Died This Year in his final role.

On the meta side of things, it's a hilarious send-up of Oscar Bait movies in general by the folks at BriTANicK.com. Given how its entire purpose is to hang a gigantic lampshade on such films, it's not surprising how incredibly Troperrific it is for a video that's only three and a half minutes long.

First posted on Cracked. Watch it there, or on the creators' website.
