As you might have heard, the 81st Annual Academy Awards are taking place this Sunday in Los Angeles. To celebrate, we're featuring a mix of funny, nerdy, and emotional videos dedicated to Oscar on the YouTube home page this weekend.

Today, we're spotlighting Oscar-inspired parodies and humorous videos from YouTube users Jimmy Kimmel, Chad Vader (aka blamesocietyfilms), DC Lugi, and the Fine Brothers, who manage to give spoilers for all 80 Best Picture winners in less than five minutes.

On Sunday, the day of the ceremony, the YouTube home page will be devoted to "Oscar's Greatest Moments" and will feature 12 historic clips from the Academy's archives. Remember Halle Berry's emotional acceptance speech for Best Actress? Martin Scorsese's win, after losing for nearly 30 years? Roberto Benigni's freak-out? The streaker? Relive those moments on our home page and/or check out many others on the Academy Awards' official YouTube channel.
