Seth Meyers took a jab at all films “shamelessly timed for award season” on Tuesday's “Late Night” when he starred in a parody trailer for “Oscar Bait.”
In the trailer for the “triumphant,” “daring” film that's “not afraid to pander to your emotions,” Meyers plays the role of a dramatic husband, a dramatic father and a dramatic man with balloon foot?
The “story of redemption” is chock-full of “racial tension,” “latent homosexuality” and “a man staring at trains.”
The fake film also features “pretentiously artistic shots of a man's hand grazing wheat, the grabbing of a bed sheet to indicate an orgasm and that weird Spike Lee thing where the character is gliding towards the camera and it's like, 'Is he walking? Is he floating? What the hell is that thing?'”
