The Oscars are almost here, and Shutterstock is getting in on the action by reimaging the posters for this year’s nominees. While most of the official posters for the nominees were pretty good (although the less said about the bland one for Call Me by Your Name, the better), Shutterstock’s team of designers decided to channel various artists to come up with new designs. Specifically:
- Call Me By Your Name – inspired by James Rosenquist, designed by Tim Harrison/Shutterstock
- Darkest Hour – inspired by Richard Hamilton, designed by Alice Li/Shutterstock
- Dunkirk – inspired by Takashi Murakami, designed by Brandon Lee/Shutterstock
- Get Out – inspired by Keith Haring, designed by Alice Lee/Shutterstock
- Lady Bird – inspired by Mel Ramos, designed by Brenda Luu/Shutterstock
- Phantom Thread – inspired by Malika Favre, designed by Florence Lau/Shutterstock
- Shape of Water – inspired by Kiki Kogelnik, designed by Kia Delgato/Shutterstock
- The Post – inspired by Ed Ruscha, designed by Jenny Forrest/Shutterstock
- Three Billboards – inspired by Olly Moss, designed by Jackelyne Catillo/Shutterstock
Per the press release:
“This year’s nominations illustrate a wide range of time periods from the early days of World War II to modern day America, each with a storyline that is primarily dramatic in nature making them the perfect inspiration for a new, more colorful interpretation.” said Shutterstock’s Curator, Robyn Lange. “This is a creative tradition we look forward to every year and it is an opportunity to display the incredible artwork of our contributor community while also celebrating the talent of visionary artists, directors, producers and designers.”
The only downside to these posters is that they’re not available for sale. I’d happily pick up the one for Dunkirk.
Check out the posters below. The 90th Annual Academy Awards will be held this Sunday at 8pm EST on ABC.
