This Oscar poster was created by artist Olly Moss ahead of this year's awards show. It encompasses 85 years of film history, and each year is represented by a totem signifying each Best Picture winner.
That blank spot in 2001? It confused me at first too, but it is for A Beautiful Mind with Russell Crowe and Jennifer Connelly. If you have seen the movie, you will get it. I am not going to spoil a years old movie. The Forrest Gump and Patton ones are pretty cool.
A time-wasting photo indeed. The fun is figuring out which character represents which movie with resorting to IMDb.
So, what will it be this year? A little Oscar in a stovepipe hat? We'll all have to see on February 24th!
