The Help

The Oscar broadcast is a mere hour and a half away — and the red-carpet judgments are already off and running — but to help you through that last ninety minutes, some adorable children are back to recreate each of the Best Picture nominees. So if you ever wanted to hear an elementary schooler say "sabermetrics," today is your lucky day.

All the picks are unbearably cute, but it doesn't get much better than two little boys wondering how Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close got nominated through messages scrawled on their hands. Or mini-mini-Sean Penn screaming, "A dinosaur!"

Oh and let me put your fears to rest: yes, there's an Uggie stand-in.

P.S. How does one go about adopting little Ben Kingsley?
