OSCARS BEST PICTURE POSTER This year, Oscar is definitely dressed for the occasion. . . . All eighty five of them. English artist Olly Moss has created a poster depicting all the previous winners of the Academy Awards Best Picture category – each styled as individual Oscar statuettes in distinct poses connected to the respective winning films. Moss’ commemorative poster was officially commissioned by Gallery1988 for the upcoming 85th Academy Awards (Feb 24). Last year’s winner The Artist is suitably dressed in black and white, whilst in traditional Arab costume for Peter O’Toole’s Lawrence of Arabia (1962) and as the Artful Dodger for Oliver! (1968). The famous Leonardo DiCaprio Kate Winslet Titanic pose is reprised for 1997s record breaking winner, Slumdog Millionaire (2008) is accompanied by the familiar Who Wants To Be A Millionaire multiple choice screen layout and . . . you get the picture! The Oscars statuette is, in fact, a knight standing atop a film reel clasping a quintet of spokes each representing five original branches of the Academy: Actors, Writers, Directors, Producers and Technicians. The coveted gold-plated britannium gong – officially named the Academy Award of Merit – was itself designed by Cedric Gibbons in 1928 and sculpted by George Stanley from the nude pose of Mexican actor Emilio “El Indio” Fernández.
