Academy Releases 84 Olly Moss Created Oscar Celebratory Posters

84 posters, 84 different designs, one fanastic gallery

Commemorative 2013 Oscar Poster / Olly MossThe Academy has just revealed 84 different Oscar statuettes inspired by past winners and created by artist Olly Moss for a special edition poster for this year's Oscars. The poster, which collects all 84 images (plus a new one for this year's winner) is on sale now right here.

Moss designed the commemorative poster in collaboration with Gallery1988 and the final poster will feature 85 Oscar statuettes once the winner of this year's Oscars is announced on February 24.

The press release announcing the project included the following bio on Moss, whose work I'm sure many of you are already familiar with:

Moss, a graduate of the University of Birmingham, is best known for such works as the Thor cast poster for Marvel Entertainment, the cover artwork for the "Resistance 3" video game, and his recent book "Silhouettes" from Popular Culture. One of the most sought-after screen print artists working today, Moss has created illustrations for "The New York Times" and "The Guardian," and is commissioned by Empire magazine to design a new movie poster illustration every month.

Moss called the assignment one of the hardest he's ever had on his official website.

I have grabbed all 84 individual posters that have been released so far and included them over the next several pages and while I'm sure you'll recognize most of them, there are some that do not have the title on them, so before you begin, here's a list of all the Best Picture winners:

    Love the "A Beautiful Mind" one.

  • http://www.ropeofsilicon.com/profile/Xarnis/ Xarnis

    These are actually pretty cool.

  • http://www.ropeofsilicon.com/profile/navaneethks/ navaneethks

    wow. coolness

    The one for "A Beautiful Mind" is probably my favorite, but I also really like the ones for Casablanca, The Godfather and The Godfather Part II, One Flew, and Annie Hall.

    The one for Titanic is probably the funniest, because as you're scrolling down it looks like the same poster as the one for Rocky -- and then you see the ship.

    This is awesome!

    Can't believe the amount of work that the artist had to go through in order to achieve this outcome....

  • Thornsy

    And today was the day I learned Oscar is holding a sword...I thought he was just holding his hands to his chest...

  • Hurricane

    The Lawrence of Arabia one is sick

    What's up with the Crash one?

    • http://hypethemovies.wordpress.com Jordan B.

      I wondered the same.

    • Movie Fan

      It is probably because since the film talks a lot about racism the statue is black to represent most of the characters

  • Newbourne

    The Slumdog Millionaire one was very uninspiring. I bet he just phoned it in by the time he got to 2008.

  • GARY JAMES

    No getting away from it ,the boy has considerable talent,some very clever stuff.

  • Burt

    I did not like 1994... I don't like to see Oscar seating.
