Since 2016, the Garbage Pail Kids have been letting the air out of all the pomp and circumstance of The Academy Awards. Hollywood’s biggest night is the perfect combination of celebrity exposure and big cultural event that is tailored-made for GPK parodying. During the past seven years, A-listers from Leonardo DiCaprio, Brad Pitt, Lady Gaga, to Tom Cruise have received the Garbage Pail treatment.

This year is no different. For the next week, the Garbage Pail Kids: Not-Scars 2024 will be available here until 3/14, featuring send-ups of Oscar-hopefuls Barbie, Oppenheimer, Maestro, The Holdovers, and Killers of the Flower Moon.

Let’s take a closer look at this year’s GPK Not-Scars set.

Garbage Pail Kids The Not-Scars 2024

LOOGIE LENNY, Garbage Pail Kids: Not-Scars 2024

Bradley Cooper’s prosthetic tour de force, Maestro, earned seven Academy Award nominations, including Best Picture and Best Actor. Cooper went full method-actor by wearing a prosthetic nose in an attempt to look more like the biopic’s subject, Leonard Bernstein. We’re not so sure it was necessary, but it makes for a great boogie bit on this LOOGIE LENNY card.

MALIGNED MARGOT, Garbage Pail Kids: Not-Scars 2024

All jokes aside, Greta Gerwig was definitely snubbed when the Oscars committee failed to nominate her for Best Director. But Barbie still raked in the nominations for Best Supporting Actor and Actress, and Best Original Song, among others. Don’t worry, Greta, in our hearts, you’ll always be Ken-enough.

B.O. LEO, Garbage Pail Kids: Not-Scars 2024

Killers of the Flower Moon rolls into the Oscars with 10 total nominations. In addition to nominations for cinema royalty Robert De Niro and Martin Scorcese, Killers also saw Lily Gladstone (Best Actress) and Scott George (Best Original Song) receive the first two Academy Award nominations for Native Americans. This is all well and good, but has anyone gotten to the bottom of whether or not the Pioneer Woman’s family really owns all the Osage land?

WALLEYED PAUL, Garbage Pail Kids: Not-Scars 2024

Everybody’s favorite rumpled everyman, Paul Giamatti, continues to impress as the rightful heir to Karl Malden. Sure, we all love Giamatti in quasi-arthouse fare when he teams up with The Holdovers director Alexander Payne. But would it kill Giamatti to bring back Mr. X in a sequel to The Nanny Diaries?

OWEN OPPENHEIMER, Garbage Pail Kids: Not-Scars 2024

At this point in the award season, the coronation of Oppenheimer, director Christopher Nolan, star Cillian Murphy, and costars Emily Blunt and Robert Downey Jr. feels almost like a fait accompli. Thankfully, we have GPK here to stir the pot of what will be a long, drawn out ceremony. The Oscars are garbage.

Make sure and grab your Garbage Pail Kids: Not-Scars 2024 set between now and March 14.
