The only tradition as time-honored and hallowed as the Oscars is, of course, making fun of the Oscars. And last night, following a special post-Oscars edition of his show, Jimmy Kimmel got a head start on everybody. Using his always impressive celebrity Rolodex and his even more impressive acumen with our nation’s most treasured memes, Kimmel reimagined a slew of viral best-ofs as Oscar contenders. If you never imagined you’d see the Hemsworth brothers team up (and use their real accents!) in a Christopher Nolan spoof based on the seminal work “Charlie Bit My Finger” — well, brotha, you are not imagining hard enough. Check ’em all out below.

Bitman Begins, Starring the Hemsworth Brothers

Sweet Brown: Ain’t Nobody Got Time for That, Starring Queen Latifah and Barkhad Abdi

Ameowadeus, Starring Kevin Spacey, Ben Kingsley, Christoph Waltz, Gary Oldman, and Mandy Patinkin
