May have worked better as a photo gallery
15 September 2013 | by (Berlin, Germany) – See all my reviews

This collection of short clips, most not longer than a minute, includes many of the big names from the the lead categories of the 2011/2012-awards season including Academy Award winner for Best Actor in a Leading Role Jean Dujardin, but sadly not his female counter-part Meryl Streep, who'd have been interesting to watch as another personification of evil after her work in "The Devil Wears Prada", although some might argue that she just did in her portrayal of Maggie Thatcher that gave her a third Oscar.

Everybody embodies a certain villain character. The ones I did not like so much were Brad Pitt, Mia Wasikowska, Viola Davis and Dujardin. Really well done was Gary Oldman as a puppet-human reciting "My Bonnie is over the Ocean" as well as Jessica Chastain who was as simple as effective and also Rooney Mara delivering an evil Chaplin. Everybody will have their own favorites, I'm sure, but these are the three snippets I'd recommend the most.
