We think these kids deserve an award.
Chicago clan, the Storino family, anxiously await awards season every year to re-create motifs from the year's most celebrated movies for their site Don't Call Me Oscar
. For the past eight years the Storino children have posed in scene reenactments of films nominated by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences for Best Picture. Here is this year's batch:
@DontCallMeOscar / 20th Century Fox
Serious Meryl Streep, Serious Tom Hanks, but not so serious Tracy Letts... One young Storino gave the camera a wide smile instead of a stern stare.

"The Shape of Water":
Just when you thought dressing up and posing was enough, these cuties took it a step further. We wonder how much ice cream their parents promised them before they agreed to get wet, cold and hold their breath for this shot.

"The Darkest Hour":
If a young girl dressed as Winston Churchill doesn't melt your heart, we don't know what does.

"Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri":
This little girl is killing it in a bandana, pretending to be Frances McDormand's grief-stricken character.

Daydreamy stare: Check. Hands clasped: Check. Pink cast: Check.

"Call Me By Your Name":
OK, so the bike isn't an exact replica.

As much as she wants to look terrified, she can really only transmit adorable.

It's all about the balloons.

Young Harry and even younger Harry.
