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.

Battle: Los Angeles

The trailers so far for this sure to be blockbuster have been slowly building momentum, teasing more and more of the good stuff over the past few months. This last trailer seems to indicate a nice mix of Cloverfield, Aliens and District 9. All these should bring to the mix a great disaster, alien, popcorn flick, although I’m hoping for a stand out, new ground flick nonetheless with a touch of its own something to make it stand out.

Trailer here.
