84th Academy Awards

Life. Camera. Action! The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences has unveiled the new poster for the 84th Academy Awards today. The poster features a giant off-center Oscar statue along with some faded imagery in the bokeh bubbles to the side. The eight films seen span eight decades and include: Gone with the Wind (1939), Casablanca (1943), Giant (1956), The Sound of Music (1965), The Godfather (1972), Driving Miss Daisy (1989), Forrest Gump (1994) and Gladiator (2000). All of these are Best Picture winners, except for Giant, which won Best Director its year. The nominees are coming late January.

The 84th Academy Awards nominations will be announced on Tuesday, January 24th, 2012. The artwork for this poster was created by graphic designer Anthony Goldschmidt, and Mark & Karen Crawford of the design firm Blood&Chocolate. The Oscars ceremony this year will be broadcast live on ABC the evening of Sunday, February 26th, 2012, as also listed on the bottom of the poster. Looking good?

    ... lame, but hey, it's the Oscars, the lame awards to begin with...

      What?! I know people think the Oscars are trendy/cliche or whatever, but come on, these are the OSCARS - they're as far from lame as any award could be! You want to talk about lame, look at the Golden Globes...

        Putting Rusty Crowe-in-a-toga and "Don't Call Him Stupid!" Gump with the Godfather, Julie Andrews, and the others is lame. Not dumping on either Crowe or Hanks but those movies/characters classics but not on the level of Casablanca or Driving Miss Daisy.

          I really disagree with you, are you saying that no contemporary film could even come close to the classics so people shouldn't even try to make movies anymore?
