Over at indie streaming service Fandor's Keyframe blog, Kevin B. Lee has created a clever video series covering the major Academy Awards categories -- from Best Cinematography to Best Picture, the Best Director showdown and more. Watch below.

The best of the set is the nifty Best Picture video, where Lee discusses with Siri why Spike Jonze's "Her," "the one that leaves me wondering the most about the world that I live in, and what it means to be human," ought to win. 

Also check out videos for Director, Actor and Actress below. In the acting categories, Lee breaks down what percentage of the movie the actors are actually in -- the results are kind of startling when you think about it.

The remaining videos, including Cinematography and Supporting Actor categories, are here.
