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).

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?
