It's a little early for awards season buzz to get under way, but I think we all realize that a serious Oscar contender is opening nationwide this Friday. Yes, I'm talking about Piranha 3D. The cast of Alexandre Aja's remake of the Joe Dante/Roger Corman cult classic have already begun lobbying for the film to be nominated in all the major categories and Funny or Die has the video to prove it.

Jerry O'Connell, Kelly Brook, Jessica Szohr, porn star Riley Steele, Adam Scott and Paul Scheer have all donned their finest evening wear to tell you and Academy voters why this film should win everyone involved an Oscar. As Scott points out, why stop at Best Picture? Why not present the film with an Oscar for "best penis being gobbled and spit out in 3D?" I admit, it's hard to argue with that logic. Plus, as the clip mentions, there are ten nominees for Best Picture now -- and it doesn't make sense to nominate Inception ten times.

Swim with the fishes and watch the clip over on Cinematical.
