There, a Michael Fassbender-helmed jury will choose the winner, who lands a $500,000 production grant from Ridley Scott. Yes please!

This Japanese guy has a seemingly infinite amount of videos that are all dedicated to displaying Japanese desserts and snack foods up close. It’s simple, straightforward, and all you ever see are his hands dissecting these deliciously sexy food items.
Everynone’s latest video, Laughs, is fantastic. Once again they’ve produced a gem. It is simpler than Words, but is still such a creative and uplifting video. You can’t help but grin watching it.
This is awesome. YouTube user OHADI22 has spent a good portion of time splicing together 36 of the many cover versions of Radiohead’s acoustic epic Paranoid Android to create the ultimate YouTube cover version. We salute.
