It’s not always easy as a tech company to make yourself relevant to every single big public event. But Google has had a pretty nice go at shoehorning itself into the Oscars this year by letting you travel through a winning movie’s story using Maps.

Can you guess which films they’ve animated here?

Not to miss out on an additional branding opportunity, Google is quick to remind you at the end of each short that you can of course catch each of these classics on Google Play. Or whichever is your streaming service of choice, of course.

Post your answers on your favorite social network please, which is for once, unlikely to be a Google product.

And the winner is….#MapsAtTheMovies [Google]
