Even if you hate the Oscars, you’ll love what artist Olly Moss has done for the official 85 Years of Oscar poster. We previously showed you individual posters by various artists for this year’s Best Picture nominees, but Moss’ work outshines them all. He’s taken every single Best Picture winner and tried to fit them into the Oscar statue in one image. Some of these are particularly brilliant (it took me a few moments to figure out how he represented 2001’s winner, A Beautiful Mind), and it’s a fun game to try and guess the each year’s Best Picture winner from Moss’ poster alone.
We know that Gallery1988 is teaming up with the Academy for something big this Thursday through Sunday. They are giving away 100 of each of the Best Picture nominee posters, and it will be interesting to see if they do anything special with the Moss poster. More details should be announced in the next day or so. Hit the jump to check out Moss’ 85 Years of Oscar poster and find out how you can buy it now. The 85th Academy Awards will be held on February 24th at 7pm EST on ABC.
