Stunning. The Academy has taken a bold move and commissioned, in conjunction with Gallery1988 in Los Angeles, a special series of artwork/posters for the nine 2013 Best Picture nominees. Together they found nine different artists to create a piece for each movie, and the results are impressive. Oscar.com (via Collider) has posted the full gallery of all nine prints, with artists, including popular names like Phantom City Creative (Les Mis), Matt Owen (Amour), Rich Kelly (Beasts), Tom Whalen (Life of Pi). Overall, these turned out kind of amazing, and I wish I could even get my hands on a copy of one print. See all below.

First is Michael Haneke's depressing drama Amour, with art by Matt Owen (website). 18×24 screen print.

Amour

Next is Ben Affleck's dark horse drama Argo, with art by Anthony Petrie (website). 18×24 screen print.

Love Benh Zeitlin's Beasts of the Southern Wild, with art by Rich Kelly (website). 18×24 screen print.

Beautiful print for Quentin Tarantino's Django Unchained, with art by Mark Englert (website). 36×12.

Finally it's Kathryn Bigelow's Zero Dark Thirty, with art by Godmachine (website). Right side is GITD.

All of the art courtesy of ABC's Oscar.com site, from their original creator. The Academy & Gallery1988 commissioned a small group of young international artists to create original screen prints inspired by this year’s nine Best Picture nominees. All of these are outstanding, I think I love something about just about all of them. They even found some artists I've never heard of, or seen anything from before, yet did great work. Like Godmachine on that Zero Dark Thirty poster, or Anthony Petrie with that Argo poster. I wish I was lucky enough to get a copy of all of these, but Gallery1988 is in Los Angeles (and I'm not there any more!).

    Some beautiful work apart from silver linings playbook. I just can't stand those bullshit traced posters, where the artist has so little confidence in their design that they just throw as many images as they possibly can at the page.

    Why can't these ever be official posters?
