Winners of the 66th BAFTA Awards will be announced on February 10th, and artist Jonathan Burton has drawn up posters for the Best Picture nominees Lincoln, Argo, Zero Dark Thirty, Life of Pi, and Les Miserables.  These are some nice posters, and I wish the Oscars would do something similar.  Speaking of the BAFTAs, I’m curious to see if they follow suit with the PGA Awards and the SAG Awards and give Best Picture to Argo.  Adam recently pointed out to me that this year could be like 1995 where Apollo 13 picked up the PGA, SAG, and DGA but lost out on Best Picture to Braveheart.  Of course, Apollo 13 had a Best Director nomination, and Argo doesn’t [Correction: Ron Howard was not nominated for Best Director, making the comparisons to Argo even more apt].  Competition-wise, it’s going to be an interesting Academy Awards.

Hit the jump to check out the posters.  The 85th Annual Academy Awards will be held on February 24th.
