'Piranha 3D' for Best Picture?: Watch the cast make their case in this hilarious 'Funny Or Die' video

Piranha-3DImage Credit: Gene PageIn my recent post on Piranha 3D I wrote that, despite featuring the talents of Academy Award winner Richard Dreyfuss and Academy Award nominee Elisabeth Shue, this carnage- and cleavage-filled enterprise is “about as far from Oscar catnip as it is possible to get.” Apparently cast members Jerry O’Connell, Adam Scott, Jessica Szohr, Paul Scheer, Kelly Brook, and Riley Steele disagree.

In a move that I’m going to egomaniacally regard as a direct attack on my reporting skills, the aforementioned thespians have just released a tongue-in-cheek video on Funny Or Die in which they make the case that the film, which opens Friday, actually deserves a Best Picture nomination. They also take potshots at the Academy whenever possible. “Did last year’s Academy Awards have blood?” demands Szohr. “Did one of the presenters’ bodies get cut in half, where the top half fell off the bottom half, like a cartoon? I don’t know. Didn’t watch it. Neither did anyone else under fifty!

You can check out the clip after the jump. They’ve definitely got my vote for Best Gun-Toting Jet Ski Fight In A Piranha-Related Film. Well, they would, if that category existed. And I had a vote. What about you?

    I remember The Hurt Locker having people getting blown up.
    Even Up had blood.

    Although I don’t like Jerry O’Connell (how does he still have a career? The only good film he was ever in is Stand by Me), I have to say that was kind of funny. And how cute is Adam Scott?
