    It's Hollywood legend that a young Steven Spielberg broke into the Universal lot to start his movie career. Less well known is that Francis Ford Coppola poisoned the head of development at Paramount with bleach, or that George Lucas knifed six guards in a prison riot to get Star Wars made.


    There are two takeaways from this. One: America's filmmakers are degenerate thugs. Two: Security was a lot more relaxed in the Seventies. We wouldn't advise aspiring young filmmakers trying anything like that in 2014.


    Luckily, you don't have to. Introducing the nominees for the 2014 Saxxy Awards, who were able to be incredibly creative without being the prime suspect in a string of brutal unsolved murders in 1974 (John Carpenter).

    I have to agree. Some of these nominees were decent, but I don't feel like they were as impressive as last years. Rather, the quality of the best stuff is still good but some of the weaker nominees felt weaker than last years. I think more voting time/filmmaking time was needed. It's also telling how many videos are remastered versions of stuff that came out last year. I count 3. Plus, I think Valve should have paid closer attention: Heavy's Game is an exact retelling of this Pixar short, and I bet they didn't get permission.

    Still, the Dota stuff was really well made and people have broken the voice acting taboo pretty successfully. Overall, decent but I'd like to see a rebound next year as people put out original content.

    If he's paradoying it, it's legal.

    This is how Weird Al gets away with all his stuff.

    Funny thing is, is that Weird Al still asks if he can parody the songs.
