Hilarious truthful posters for the 2016 Oscar nominees

Every year, the Hollywood bods would have us believe that the selections they make represent the purest, most intelligent, most thrilling level of filmmaking that have ever been seen by the Academy (as long as those involved are white of of course...(allegedly)).

But sometimes their inflated sense of worth and pomposity needs the occasional pinprick - and it's been beautifully provided by The Shiznit, who have created these fantastic truthful Oscar posters.

Cutting to the chase (literally, in the case of Mad Max: Fury Road), and blasting through the pretention: this is what this year's Oscar-nominated films are really about.
