Well guys, it’s finally here. The 2012 Oscars poster you’ve been waking up in a cold sweat for has arrived, and boy is it splendid. Let’s break it down.
First, it looks like we have an inspired montage of stills from several films which have previously won Best Picture. On top of that we have the bronze version of the T1000 from Terminator 2 in the midst of transforming into a replica of your murdered parents. A bit strange considering T2 wasn´t even nominated for Best Picture, but who are we to argue with the Academy Awards? We’re nobody, that’s who!
The top of the poster has the heading ‘Life. Camera. Action.’ because these days the best humor involves puns at the beginning of the joke.
Now for my favorite part – To the left of the kneecaps we have the caption ‘Celebrate the movies in all of us,’ yet another confirmation that the production team had one too many drunken orgies with old DVD copies of Hard Candy lying around. We knew it was happening, but not until now have we had such a visceral indication of the true nature of this so called ¨family friendly¨event.
All in all, we’ve been given some pretty weighty stuff to keep us in moist with anticipation of the 84th Academy Awards, and I for one will be glued to my set this February.
