85O_Anni_540x800We are ramping up to the Oscars and the Academy has released some new poster art to celebrate the occasion. Olly Moss, the talented designer, was commissioned to create a poster inspired by past Best Picture winners and came up with the wonderful creation you see on the right. The poster was made in conjunctions with Gallery1988 and will include a final poster once Argo wins again a Best Picture is crowned on February 24. I’ve included some of my favorites after the jump but you can view the whole gallery here.

You can buy the posters here from the Academy website.
