It’s nearly time for the luvvies of Hollywood to congregate at the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles for the 85th Academy Awards. To celebrate the 85th year, a wonderful poster has been produced by artist Olly Moss.

Like the Aliens poster that I posted previously, this one requires a closer look too. Click the image for the full resolution image of the poster.

85 statuettes standing to mark the 85 years of the Oscars, each statuette adopting the persona of the film that won the Best Picture Award for that particular year. Quite an achievement with some of them so subtle, you might find it hard to figure out which film it represents. Check out 1988s statuette and be amazed at the subtlety!

How many can you get right? Here’s a full list of winners year by year to see how well/badly you did.

Brandon Flowers

I’m just in from attending Brandon Flowers gig at Brixton Academy. I feel very lucky that a good friend had a sudden, unexpected, spare ticket going at the last-minute and I managed to tag along for good times. What an amazing gig. I like the Killers, but Brandon Flowers first solo album really caught my ear. Crossfire was brilliant and I was grabbed by the majority of the songs on the album. Hearing him live was something else. What a talent. Clearly not lip-synching he sung each song with such individualistic verve it had me (a non-dancer) dancing enthusiastically and singing along without a care.

We were even treated to a few Killers tracks and a cool rendition of Bette David Eyes. See links below for videos. In the meantime be sure to buy Flamingo the solo album by Brandon Flowers.
