Man a YouTube hit with his tribute to Oscar winning supporting actresses

He nails everyone from Mo'Nique to Cloris Leachman to Whoopi Goldberg

Man a YouTube hit with his tribute to Oscar winning supporting actresses
11 April 2012

The Academy Awards took place more than a month ago but a brilliant parody video of the performances of 75 best supporting actress winners continues to be a hit on YouTube.

As of Wednesday afternoon PST, the tour-de-force by a guy known only as TheDoomsdaysDiaries was closing in on 37,000 hits.

TheDoomsdaysDiaries writes of the video: 'As many of you know, I adore the category of Best Supporting Actress at the Academy Awards. I have decided to pay tribute to these wonderful performances by doing what I do best: Making a fool out of myself!'

He gives quick glimpses of every winning performance from Gale Sondergaard in 1936 to this year's winner Octavia Spencer. In between are such gems as Hattie MacDaniel in Gone With the Wind, Sandy Dennis in Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?, Cloris Leachman in The Last Picture Show and Mo'nique in Precious.

It's a real hoot to watch – and a little bit exhausting!
