Oscar Posters 2019

Posted on Updated on

This is always a fun exercise for me each year, since I LOVE film, the Oscars and designing stuff! These are more for me than anyone else 🙂 But if you enjoy them too, then cool! **I only design posters for the films I see, so I can design the poster with the full picture in mind.

I managed 8 this year – here they are together, and then individual designs are below.

Congrats to “Green Book” for winning Best Picture! But really, congrats to every nominee, cuz that must be an amazing feeling! 😀

My Oscar Posters 2017

Posted on Updated on

This is my tradition of watching the Oscar-nominated films, and then doing my minimalist version of the posters. This past Feb I had MANY more intentions of doing a lot more posters – but it turns out having a baby takes a lot of your time! LOL. Here are the four I managed to squeak out. [I did these in Feb and am only NOW posting them, ack.] ‘Til next year!

My Oscar Posters 2016

Posted on

Every year I love to reimagine the Oscar-nominated films in quick posters that I design. It’s mostly just a fun exercise for me. The only rule is that I have to see the film, and then one scene or image that sticks out or sums up the film, will make up the poster.

Here’s what I came up with!

Oscar Posters 2015

I have been holding out to see “Selma” before posting these, but I still have not been able to find that anywhere…. alas one day I will, and shortly thereafter add my version of the poster to this collection.

There were 8 nominees this year, and I decided against seeing “American Sniper”. So I will hold any comments or feelings about that film to myself 🙂

The other 7 [sans “Selma”] I managed to see…. and I found them all to be incredible in their own way. I am listing them from Most Enjoyed to Least Enjoyed, which is of course only my opinion. Posters to follow: [click for larger versions]

“The Theory of Everything”  [2014] – I thought the acting was superb in this film. What a tremendous true story of perseverance, strength and courage. Loved it!

“The Imitation Game” [2014] – Another true story. Heartbreaking, and almost unbelievable what one man accomplished – and what he unjustly suffered afterwards. Such an important story and an incredible film.

“Boyhood” [2014] – I wasn’t sure what to make of this film, except that I knew it was filmed over so many years. But after seeing it, I think it was quite beautiful. Linklater was able to create a film that really did feel like snapshots of a lifetime; almost like when you think back to your own upbringing. Great film.

“The Grand Budapest Hotel” [2014] – The colour palettes and cinematography on Anderson’s film are always magical. This one was so saturated and almost hyper-real, but it really fit the world. One of my favs of his films.

“Whiplash” [2014] – The acting on this film was incredible as well. Somehow a music class and a drum teacher made for an incredibly fascinating film.

“Birdman: Or (The Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance” [2014] – While I didn’t care for this film as much as the general public, I can appreciate the long trucking shots and the interesting choices made for cinematography sake. I sort of liked how it ended as well 🙂
