    Not sure if anyone else has managed to comment on this, but I was recently introduced to a new poster in preparation for the Academy Awards. I wasn’t the biggest fan of the previous one with Seth MacFarlane, but this one – featuring a different statue designed to represent the winners of each year – really blew me away in its detail.

    Anyone have any thoughts on this?

    It’s amazing! The one before with Seth MacFarlane was so bad!
    Is a beautiful mind not there because of 9/11? I can only assume so.

    ^ No, I think it’s a gag referring to Russell Crowe’s hallucinations throughout the movie. Is the Oscar there or not? Who knows?

    I love this poster by the way, it’s very creative.

    Yes I’ve taken a look at it. I think my favorite one is the statuette of the ‘girl in the red coat’.

    I’m not sure how to interpret the missing 2001 Oscar, but could that be a photograph of Sissy’s mantel?

    Pook, I’m glad you took to that one. I think that’s tied for my favorite with the Hobbit of 2003 and 1960’s use of the spaghetti on the tennis racket (man, do I want to watch The Apartment again).

    Also, if we’re all speculating about it, I was also pretty sure that 2001 was an allusion to John Nash’s hallucinations.

    Aaah ok thanks. Yeah that makes sense!

    Wonderful poster. Could spend hours looking at it! Lots of fun 🙂  A few confusing ones that are harder to interpret than others (i.e. Terms of Endearment, Crash), then again, a lot of iconic images that connot be mistaken (American Beauty, Forrest Gump, Platoon, The Godfather, Lawrence of Arabia, The Last Emperor).

    I was wondering why the Schindler’s List Oscar didn’t depict Oskar Schindler, but then I realized it might not be very tasteful to have one in SS garb, so perhaps the girl in the red coat was a better, and perhaps more recognizable image to use.

    One of my favourites is Rain Man

    My guess, if they ever did keep this poster up-to-date, the Argo statue would have a beard, shaggy mop top, a suit, briefcase, CIA badge on his chest, and a script in his hand. But then again, most of these statues are bald and/or naked. So, perhaps scrap the beard and hair.

    Even though I can appreciate the A Beautiful Mind “statue,” I feel like a statue working on, or standing in front of a window filled with formulatic equations would be a bit more easily recognized/associated with the film.

    Does anyone know a site where they have each photo individually. Not matter where I look its blurry when I zoom in. Can’t even read the dates! This is really good. Love the Slumdog one and also the little rat from the Departed.
