Just in time for Sunday's Oscars awards, Seth Meyers, the host of Late Night, has made a trailer for a movie designed to catch the attention of the Academy. The first clue? Well, it's called Oscar Bait.

As the voiceover says, "Oscar Bait checks off all the boxes: racial tension, latent homosexuality, and a man staring at trains." It's also got a main character trying to overcome a (ridiculous) disease, artistic shots of a man's hand touching wheat, and more crying than a funeral.

Wow, that really is all the boxes! Well, just about all—there doesn't seem to be any singing or dancing. Good luck beating La La Land, Oscar Bait.
