Olly Moss Poster Turns Every Best Picture Winner Into an Oscar Statue

By  · Published on February 12th, 2013

For 85 years, the Oscar statue has been the symbol of the ceremony, evolving into a mythic icon with its own storied history. Now master artist Olly Moss has transformed that perfectly postured, bald man into a sexy hitchhiker, a southern belle, a skull-carrying Danish prince, a pudgy butcher, a chariot racer, a Shark (or a Jet?), a chauffeur, a little girl in a red dress, a king of the world, a bomb disposal technician and 75 other figures from Best Picture winners.

It’s also a fun game to see if you can spot all the winners and the characters he’s chosen to represent each. My personal favorites include the statues for The Godfather, The Deer Hunter, Casablanca and American Beauty, but there’s a kind of brilliance in what he did for the Oscar winner of 2001. Check out the hi-res poster over at Moss’ website and play along.
