American Hustle as it played out in the media pre-release

Oscars nominations are always ripe for parody, with the Academy's picks so predictably favouring A-lister vehicles, films that depict harrowing historical events and anything with unprecedented CGI.

It wasn't surprising to see American Hustle, 12 Years A Slave and Gravity garner nods in so many categories then, leading anyone with a copy of Photoshop to take them down a peg or two with a succinct 'honest poster'.

Here's the best of the bunch circulating the internet this morning, collated from The Shiznit, College Humor and Hypable.
