“Arggh, my groin!” – George C. Scott
There’s new Zombie Simpsons in about an hour. It’s gonna be bad:
Bart’s cartoon about an angry dad is turned into Angry Dad: The Movie and quickly becomes a critics’ favorite. When Russell Brand (guest-voicing as himself) presents the Golden Globe to Bart’s film, Homer usurps the podium and gives his own acceptance speech. The film’s winning streak continues with Homer taking credit at each ceremony, so when Angry Dad receives an Oscar nomination, Bart keeps it a secret.
With the help of DJ Kwanzaa (guest voice Smoove), Homer and Marge arrive at the ceremony just as Halle Berry (guest-voicing as herself) presents the award. Bart’s fellow nominee, Nick Park (guest-voicing as himself), helps him realize that creating a film is a team effort, and Bart gives credit where credit is due.
The Oscars are essentially a three-and-a-half-hour self promotion scheme. The whole point is to remind people that they believe in the essential decency of movie stars and the magic of talking pictures. The Simpsons made fun of that. Zombie Simpsons is helping with the marketing.
