If you didn't have time to go see this year's Academy Award nominees for best picture you should watch this neat mashup by University of Nevada student Dustin Martin. It condenses the eight movies in one video and shows just enough to put you in the right mood for The Oscars without spoiling any of the fun.

This is the list:

American Sniper (Clint Eastwood)

Boyhood (Richard Linklater)

Birdman (Alejandro González Iñárritu)

The Grand Budapest Hotel (Wes Anderson)

The Imitation Game (Morten Tyldum)

Selma (Ava DuVernay)

The Theory of Everything (James Marsh)

Whiplash (Damien Chazelle)
