C’mon, what’s not to love about these kids reenacting the Oscar nominees?

There’s a skittish-but-cuddly Christian Bale, a scrawny Bradley Cooper with the scruffiest faux beard, a tiny heartbroken Joaquin Phoenix and the loneliest Sandra Bullock you’ve ever imagined, floating through space.

Whatever this adorable mashup may lack in thespian polish it makes up for in belly laughs. Mini con-men and tiny hot messes aside, we were assured no young psyches were permanently damaged by portraying such dark and dubious characters. The kids haven’t seen the movies and most just ad-lib their lines. Pretty impressive, eh?

This spot was scripted and produced by Landline TV, a production house that has been creating "Kids Reenact" videos for years.
