Star Cars: The 2014 Academy Awards Best Picture Nominees—as Cars!

Oscar and cars

The nominees for the Best Picture award at the 2014 Academy Awards were just announced, and, boy, there sure were a lot of them. This naturally got us thinking about cars. (What else?) Having seen at least some of these movies, and seen a poster for almost all of them, we decided to re-imagine each of them as an automobile. We think we’re pretty spot-on, but if you have your own ideas you’d like to share, have at it in the comments.

American Hustle

American Hustle: 1976 Lincoln Continental Mark IV Givenchy Edition

Baroque, lurid, over-the-top costuming that somehow manages to convey real power and emotion.

Captain Phillips

Captain Phillips: 1989 Chrysler TC by Maserati

Chrysler is to Maserati as Somali Pirates are to the cargo ship Maersk Alabama.

Dallas Buyers Club

Dallas Buyers Club: 1996 Porsche Boxster

Skinny Matthew McConaughey; Jared Leto in a dress.

Gravity

Gravity: 1980 “California” Corvette 305  

Irresistible to look at. But under its hypnotic surface, its mechanicals are banal and underpowered.

Her

Her: 2014 Mercedes-Benz S550

We will only accept a self-driving car—or computerized woman—if it looks, sounds, smells, and massages like Scarlett Johansson.

Nebraska

Nebraska: Gazelle (VW Beetle–Based 1929 Mercedes SSK Roadster Kit Car)

You thought you won $1 million, but it turns out you didn’t.



Philomena

Philomena: 1929 Hupmobile Series M De Luxe Century Opera Coupe

Never seen one.

12 Years a Slave

12 Years a Slave: Shelby Cobra 427

Unconscionably brutal, yet perfect. (Also, a winner.)

Wolf of Wall Street

The Wolf of Wall Street: 1983 Lamborghini Countach LP 500S

4754 cc of unadulterated pornographic 1980s bombast. But is it actually any good?
