Oscars on 2

ABC2 wanted to have a little fun with the Oscars this year.

To get into the spirit for the 85th Academy Awards , we made movie posters that parody those of the Oscar nominations for Best Picture. You can cycle through the images in the above photo gallery.

We also have commercial spots from the making of the parody posters that can be seen during the time of the Oscars broadcast, 7-11 p.m.

Be sure to leave a comment below to let us know what you think!
