Believe it or not, Sausage Party is getting a big Oscars push thanks to Sony.
The naughty R-rated animated film—which was written by and stars Seth Rogen, among others—was both a critical hit (currently sitting at 83% fresh on Rotten Tomatoes) and commercial success (earning more than $135 million worldwide, per Box Office Mojo) this summer and now it’s getting a campaign, as reported by our very own Scott Feinberg for The Hollywood Reporter, to help it compete in the 89th Academy Awards next February.
If you think this move is crazy, let us remind you about some of the off-the-wall things that have happened in the 21st century alone that will make it sound totally normal.
