Oscar Movies Reenacted By Kids (VIDEO)

Take "Zero Dark Thirty," "Lincoln" and a handful of other Oscar-nominated movies, subtract the suspense, historical drama and controversy, and add a couple of cherubic little faces reciting lines they can't quite pronounce.

Voilà: you have this video of kids recreating movies in the running for 2013's Best Picture Academy Award. It's too late to make it into this year's Best Short Film category -- but there's always 2014.
