If you're not a fan of showbiz pageantry, this is the absolute worst time to be a movie fan. There are so many award shows -- rewarding the same dozen movies -- that it's been given its own "season."

By the time the Academy Awards finally hit, you're just sick of the whole thing.

Luckily, the mock poster campaign from The Shiznit is the perfect antidote to the months of drawn-out over-hype. The series of photos, simply titled "If the Best Picture Nominee Posters Told the Truth," cuts right to the chase and lets you decide whether the Best Picture nominees are worth seeing by offering up their real selling points.
