The Academy Awards airs this Sunday, which gives you less than a week to catch up on the dozens of Oscar-nominated films. But between the over two-hour running time of Best Picture front-runner 12 Years A Slave and the three-hour epic that is The Wolf of Wall Street, we don't blame you for not finding the time to cram these into your schedule. 

But all is not lost (OK, except for Robert Redford). You can still get into the conversation with this collection of the best GIFs from every nominated performance this year. From Sandra Bullock floating in space to Barkhad Abdi pullin' some boss moves and Cate Blanchett going insane, the following clips sum up what makes each actor Oscar worthy.
