The 90th Academy Awards ceremony is this weekend, which means the Storino family recently celebrated what has become a fun and creative tradition. 2018 marks the sixth year Maggie Storino and her three daughters — Sophia, 7, Sadie, 5, and Sloane, 2 — have participated in their Don't Call Me Oscar project. After the Best Picture nominees are announced, the girls adorably reenact shots from the films with meticulous detail. 

In the past, the girls have channeled Hollywood legends such as Leonardo DiCaprio, Nicole Kidman, George Clooney, and Viola Davis. This year, the girls channeled Meryl Streep and Tom Hanks in The Post, Get Out's Daniel Kaluuya, Call Me By Your Name's Timothée Chalamet, Frances McDormand in Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri, and more. It's actually the third time the Storinos have recreated a scene with Lady Bird's Saoirse Ronan. The 23-year-old actress was also in the shots they took from Brooklyn and The Grand Budapest Hotel

However, there hasn't always been so many female leads to emulate. Maggie has often had to get creative with how to get her daughters to portray the many male leads in Oscar-nominated films. 

"What started as a lark has taken on additional meaning as the conversation around representation has evolved in Hollywood," the mom told Vanity Fair. "In the past, it's been a struggle to find stills that are identifiable by the female lead. This year felt much different. The future is female, and increasingly so are the films. My girls had so many strong actresses to emulate in 2018, from Saoirse Ronan to Frances McDormand to Sally Hawkins to Meryl Streep. I also loved being able to show them Greta Gerwig in the director's chair. What I'm most conscious of now is how much imagery matters."

The young Storino girls didn't get to actually watch any of this year's films, but they had a great time acting out their scenes. Maggie told Mashable that the family will keep the tradition alive as long as the girls continue to have fun doing it. We'll certainly continue to enjoy seeing the project until then. 

Below are a few of the photos the family took to celebrate this year's nominees:
