Ooga Booga  (2013)
Nomination Year: 2014
SYNOPSIS: A clean-cut African-American student has just passed his medical exam and, with his beautiful girlfriend, is looking forward to a bright future—only to have it cut short when he’s gunned down by a bigoted cop who, in the aftermath of a fatal convenience store robbery, at first assumes he’s the perpetrator and then decides he simply doesn’t care either way. Thanks to a malfunctioning drink machine (I guess), the young man’s spirit somehow enters the “Ooga Booga” spearchucker doll recently given to him by his best friend, the alcoholic pig-clown and erstwhile kiddie-show host, Hambo. With the help of his girlfriend, Ooga Booga then goes around (sort of ineffectually) revenging himself upon those who wronged them. In this movie, everyone but the two leads is prejudiced, even the characters you think aren’t at first.

Best One-Liner
"Straight" and "Narrow"
"From this point on, we’re on the straight and narrow: We’ll just sell hookers and drugs." I’m sure those canonization papers are due any day, fellas.
"Let's Up The Rating To 'R'"
Fresh from her rape at the hands, etc. of Moe, Larry, and Curly, she takes a shower while the creepy doll watches and jungle-beats off.
