The Oscars are mere weeks away, and as such, award season is just about over. However, that doesn’t mean we’re bereft of award-inspired artwork just yet. The BAFTAs (British Academy Film Awards) were held last week, where The King’s Speech all but swept most of the categories.

Hit the jump to check out the individual illustrations for yourself.
Here are the illustrations (via HeyUGuys):
