Once a year, Hollywood’s biggest actors come together for an epic event destined to echo throughout time. (And no, we’re not talking about the Academy Awards.)

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!”)

    None of these were even remotely funny.

  2. TV Gord says:

    I’m a longtime fan of the David After Dentist and Charlie Bit My Finger videos, so I enjoyed those. I thought the Queen Latifah one was the funniest. The Ameowadeus one didn’t do much for me, though. All in all, JKL was far superior to anything I saw on the Oscars show.

  3. Michelle A says:

    Bitman had me cracking up. The others were ok, except Sweet Brown…that was just horrible.

  4. Amie says:

    These were all better than the Oscar telecast. I am totally in love with Ameowadeus. Kevin Spacey was all method and into it as the Keyboard Cat. Loved it.
