    Olly Moss: Oscars poster (detail)

Olly Moss re-imagines the Oscar statuette as all the Best Picture winners since 1927

Posted by Rob Alderson,

And the award for the best Oscar poster we’ve ever seen goes to… Olly Moss! He’d like to thank Gallery 1988 for the commission, his friends and family and of course all the film-makers whose tremendous work provided such rich inspiration. See what I did there! Terrific stuff, but not as terrific as this poster which reimagines the iconic Academy Award statuette in the style of all the Best Picture winners of the past 85 years. Some are quite straightforward (i.e. The Hurt Locker and Lawrence of Arabia) but there are lots of more subtle takes – I like that The Artist is in black and white and that (spoiler alert) A Beautiful Mind is an empty plinth. The small girl in the red jacket from Schindler’s List is awesome too – heck I love the whole thing. Well played Olly, well played indeed!
