Media critics say this will be a fun Oscars ceremony to watch, because all of the films nominated for Best Picture were not only critical successes, but box office successes as well. That means that the average movie goer will probably have seen at least one, and all the movies are considered popularly accessible.
But if you missed one (or all) of this year's nominees, fret not. You can still join in the fun of movie awards night by watching these trailers and feeling like you're all caught up.
Dallas Buyers Club
