What the 2014 Oscars Best Picture Nominations Should Be Called

Awards season is here and the Academy just announced its nominations for Best Picture for the Oscars. They changed it up from ten to nine this year, with a variety of genres being represented, each featuring eye catching posters to woo fans to their cause.

Sometimes a movie poster can be a deciding factor in whether or not you’re going to see it. Lucky for you CollegeHumor has released movie posters for the 2014 nominees with a little twist, honest movie titles. Now it will be easier than ever to make a quick decision based on the honest title each nominee has been given.

The poster for American Hustle is spot on. Jennifer Lawrence doesn’t star in the movie, but you’re more than likely to go see it because she’s in it. She is the “it” girl of the moment. She won a Golden Globe for her supporting role in the film, and she is also nominated for an Academy Award for her role in the film.

Then you have the poster for Her. This modern day love story is about a man who falls for his operating system, which you can basically call Siri. If Siri sounded like Scarlett Johansson most men and women would fall for her too no?

Down below you’ll find all of the honest movie posters for the 2014 Best Picture nominees. Check them out and decide for yourself if any of these nine movies are worth your time based on their honest titles.
