Oscar movies are all the rage right now. Because, well, the Oscars are this coming Sunday. And kids are always all the rage. Because they’re kids.
On “Reel Kids” over at Fandango, Dan Perrault interviewed some kids to get the storylines of Oscar movies straight from the mouths of babes.
Like, for example, did you know that “The Big Short” is about a tall person and a short person who don’t agree on colors?
Or that “Brooklyn” actually takes place in a Disney store in Hollywood?
Or that “The Revenant” is about elephants? And stars Leonardo DiCARPio?
KIDS EXPLAIN OSCAR MOVIES
And I had no idea that “The Martian” actually stars John F. Kennedy, Jr.! Who knew? Maybe there’s something to that whole conspiracy that we never landed on the moon after all. Stranger things have happened.
Check out all our Oscar coverage here, and be sure to tune in for the 88th Academy Awards just days away. The Oscars will air live on ABC from the Dolby Theatre at the Hollywood & Highland Center on Sunday, Feb. 28, at 7 p.m. ET/4 p.m. PT.
