We’re referring to Jimmy Kimmel‘s post-Oscars movie spoof, which has become an annual tradition ever since the trailer for Movie: The Movie premiered on Jimmy Kimmel Live in 2012. (This was followed by Movie: The Movie: 2V in 2013.)

A cavalcade of A-listers took part in this year’s event, which was actually a collection of four trailers based on popular YouTube videos. First up, the Hemsworth brothers — with special appearances by Meryl Streep and Tom Hanks — brought us Bitman Begins, inspired by “Charlie Bit Me”:
Next, Queen Latifah, Adam Driver and Captain Phillips‘ Barkhad Abdi starred in the trailer for Sweet Brown: Ain’t Nobody Got Time For That. (The film also featured Matt Damon, though his big scene was sadly deleted.)
That was followed by Ameowadeus, the dramatic true story of Keyboard Cat and the Piano Hamster’s battle for musical greatness. This cast included Mandy Patinkin, Ben Kingsley, Christoph Waltz, Gary Oldman, Kevin Spacey and Abbie Cornish.
Finally, Joseph Gordon-Levitt starred in a psychedelic interpretation of “David After Dentist,” co-starring Catherine Zeta-Jones, Samuel L. Jackson, Seth Rogen, simply titled Baz Luhrmann’s David After Dentist: Double Rainbow, Oh My God! In 3D. (And remember, “I said spit, bitch!”)
