Watch: Mike Tyson talks Academy Awards with Leonard Maltin

Why go to people who get paid to make Oscar picks, when you can listen to Mike Tyson's weird helium voice? Funny or Die couldn't come up with a reason either. So, they put him and actual critic, Leonard Maltin, opposite each other for some Oscar-pick shenanigans. 

Personally, I'm of the mindset that whenever Mike Tyson opens his mouth, funny comes out. Think about it. Have you ever heard Tyson speak and thought, "Hm. You know what? That was both well-reasoned and sagacious." No. Before I even clicked play, I was laughing. 

Leonard Maltin's deadpan coupled with Iron Mike fucking up every nominee for every award was funny enough. But toss in a clip from a fake Tyson movie called The Pigeon Whisperer, and it's worth watching.
