Next Year's Best Picture Front Runner

Last night's episode of SNL, with host Russell Brand, had one of the show's best mock trailers in quite some time. The sketch took aim at consonant-deprived British accents with hilarious results. But the most inspired part (aside from the title) was the voice over, which made reference to, of all British crime films, the woefully under-seen Red Riding Trilogy. I realize that I part of a very smaaaaall group of people (Stateside, at least) who know what the RRT is, but it was fun to have a little movie-geek inside joke to add another layer of funny to this well-executed sketch.
