2015 Oscar Nominees Graphics Package

Although the Oscars happened a few weeks ago, the graphics from the broadcast just became available online. I watch the show every year, and every year the visual elements become better and better! This year, the graphics for all of the award categories were my favorite part of the show (competing just a bit with JLo’s dress). But I definitely wanted to share these with you (as late as they are), as I thought they were too awesome not post!

The creative director for this year’s Oscar’s package was Henry Hobson and the production studio was Elastic.

2014 Oscar Nominated Film Posters Re-imagined

Who’s ready for the Oscars? Although I would have to say that I am more of an Emmy’s gal, I still tune in almost every year for at least the first part of the show to check out all of the fashion, and of course, play Oscar Bingo! This year I thought it would be fun to make a compilation of all of my favorite re-imagined posters from around the web for all of the Oscar nominated films! Her seemed to be the most popular movie poster which got the re-design treatment, and the variations were fantastic! What are your favorites? Sound off!

85 Years Of Oscars Poster

Every year, a designer is tasked with the amazing honor of creating the annual poster for the Oscars. This year, a special edition poster for the 85th Annual Oscar Awards was created by Olly Moss—featuring 85 Oscar® statuettes, each one distinctly inspired by past Best Picture winners, from 1927 through 2012. Moss has created illustrations for The New York Times and The Guardian, and is commissioned by Empire Magazine to design a new movie poster illustration every month. Check out the “85 Years of Oscars” poster below (and some of my favorites), and visit the official Oscars site to see an incredible closeup of each statuette.

// 1999 - American Beauty

// 1997 - Titanic
