Not letting the BAFTAs have all the fun with their pamphlet art, Gallery 1988 just announced an exhibit showcasing this year's 85th Academy Awards nominations. The artists so far are as follows:
"AMOUR by artist Matt Owen, ARGO by Anthony Petrie, BEASTS OF THE SOUTHERN WILD by Rich Kelly, DJANGO UNCHAINED by Mark Englert, LES MISÉRABLES by Phantom City Creative, LINCOLN by Jeff Boyes, LIFE OF PIby Tom Whalen, SILVER LININGS PLAYBOOK by Joshua Budich and ZERO DARK THIRTY by Godmachine."
But there is promise of more to come. Very cool, I say. Every year I enjoy the Oscars more and more despite my dwindling respect for the nomination process. It's a joke, we all know it. But it's a special time of year when the rest of the world seems just as enamored with cinema as I am on a daily basis.
