A mom dressed her two little girls up as various characters from Oscar-nominated films, and the pictures are incredibly cute and hilarious.Mom and web developer Maggie Storino, 33, dressed her daughters, 3-year-old Sophia and 2-year-old Sadie, as Leonardo DiCaprio, Chiwetel Ejiofor and even Oscar host Ellen DeGeneres for her tumblr, Don’t Call Me Oscar. She told Today.com that it was a bit of fun typical for the family.

“We play dress-up all day long so this was nothing out of the ordinary,” Storino said. “You might know that Bradley Cooper, Jared Leto and Sandra Bullock aren't Disney princesses, but the girls don't. Now they want to wear an astronaut suit and pink curlers every day.”

Here are some of our favorites below. And don’t forget about this video of kids reenacting scenes from the best picture nominees.
