Here’s the official poster of the Academy Awards, unveiled this morning. The theme is “Celebrate the Movies.” Designed by Anthony Goldschmidt, and Mark and Karen Crawford of Blood&Chocolate, one-sheet features eight images of Oscar-winning movies spanning eight decades. The movies represented are 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 were best picture winners except for Giant for which George Stevens was named best director.
