Watch: This Oscars Visual Effects Mash-Up Is Quite Magical

The Oscars are but a week away and while we’re all talk of fashion and red carpets, lest we forget that it is a night to celebrate the magic and wonder of film. A recent video from the YouTube channel Burger Fiction combines all the Oscar winners in the special effects category, and it makes for quite a watch. Remember Goldie Hawn in Death Becomes Her? You will after watching.

From the first Star Wars films to Titanic and, most recently, Interstellar, it serves as a reminder just how powerful a movie can be. In particular, it’s bound to evoke some childhood memories as E.T, Mary Poppins, Bedknobs And Broomsticks all feature.

Watch it below and prepare to feel?nostalgic.

This year’s nominees are for Visual Effects are Ex Machine, Mad Max: Fury Road, The Martian, The Revenant, and Star Wars: The Force Awakens. The Oscars take place this Sunday, February 28th.
