Oscar Gold

Well, yesterday saw the announcement of the Academy Award nominations and there’s already a bit of a backlash against the Best Picture nomination for Post-9/11 drama Extremely Loud And Incredibly Close. In fact, with only a 48% “Fresh” rating on Rotten Tomatoes, it’s the worst reviewed picture of the last ten years to receive a Best Picture nomination. Some critics have accused this movie of being exploitive, cloying and “a naked ploy for an Oscar.”

So, in the spirit of this blatant (and frighteningly successful) piece of Oscar bait, here’s Seth McFarlane’s take on the kind of movie designed especially for Oscar gold, as featured on American Dad. Seriously, if this were real it would certainly be a winning card in  “Oscar nomination bingo.”
