Each year the Academy of Motions Picture Arts and Sciences releases its poster for its award show. This year they encourage all to collect and share. The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences has unveiled the poster for the 84th Academy Awards® today in Beverly Hills. The theme for the poster, which was created by award-winning graphic designer Anthony Goldschmidt, and Mark and Karen Crawford of the design firm Blood&Chocolate is, "Celebrate the movies in all of us." Movies have been a part of all of our lives and this year the Academy has tried to invoke that message in all of us. And perhaps, the collector as well. Academy President Sherak said in an AMPAS release, "Whether it's a first date or a holiday gathering with friends or family, movies are a big part of our memory." One more feature about the poster, which has the golden statuette on one side and floating like features embedded, can be downloaded shared. In fact, they encourage it. The image is available on the Academy's website, www.oscars.org/poster. A quick glance at the poster one can see those floating objects. They represent images from eight films which span eight decades. They 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). Seven of the eight won for Best Picture. "Giant" did not, but, its director, George Stevens, won for director. "The Academy Awards not only honor the excellence of these movies, but also celebrate what they mean to us as a culture and to each of us individually," Sherak added. Academy Awards for outstanding film achievements of 2011 will be presented on Sunday, February 26, 2012, at the Kodak Theatre at Hollywood & Highland Center® Source: AMPAS.
