Because they've just taken out an ad asking the Academy to consider the movie about giant robots blowin' shit up for Best Picture, as well as pretty much every other available Oscar. Transformers 4 was the least egregiously awful movie in the franchise, but does that achievement make it Oscar-worthy? I say thee nay.
"Transformers: Age Of Extinction" will likely beat "Roger & Me" as the most GM movie ever made.

There are worse ways to kill two hours on an airplane flight than by firing up one of Michael Bay's Transformers movies. There are also better ways, like reading, but whatever. The films never disappoint when it comes to cars and explosions.
Transformers: Age of Extinction, AKA Transformers 4, will not only feature a Pagani Huayra and a Ferrari 458 Speciale, but also plenty of regular-Joe cars as well. Including what looks to be a Chevrolet Malibu, getting sliced completely in two.

Despite building what is unquestionably the ugliest C7 Corvette Stingray in the world, Transformers 4 successfully made a pretty-looking Bumblebee out of a 1967 Camaro.
Never much for the concept of subtlety, director Michael Bay has cast two of the least subtle performance cars as Autobots in the next Transformers explosionfest: a 2014 Corvette Stingray and a Bugatti Veyron.
