Several Oscar nominated films this year (like The Wolf of Wall Street, Captain Phillips, and 12 Years a Slave) were based off of books. But this is the 21st century, and no one realizes that more than Jimmy Kimmel.
It's time for Oscar-worthy movies based off of a different kind of media.
Ladies and gentlemen, welcome to the era of movies based off of memes.
It's no secret that once Hollywood finds a formula for success, it sticks to it for, like, forever (see Avatar 8: Electric Blue-galoo in theaters Christmas 2027!). It's so pervasive in fact that even the trailers are basically carbon copies of each other, and they all use this one ridiculous editing style. Seriously, like 99.9% of all action movie trailers ever have done this.
