Official poster for 85th Academy Awards uniquely honors past Best Pictures

The year, the Academy Awards celebrates 85 years, and to commemorate, the new poster for the upcoming Oscars doesn’t feature one statue, but 85. Each of the statues is distinctly inspired by the Best Picture winners from 1927 to 2012. This commemorative poster was designed by English artist, graphic designer and illustrator Olly Moss in collaboration with Gallery1988.

The fun part is going through the full gallery of each statue and seeing how many of the past Best Pictures you can identify. How many Best Pictures can you name?

The full gallery of all 85 (where you can browse each one by one) is available at http://oscar.go.com/photos/themed-galleries/special/oscars-best-pictures-tribute. You can also buy the poster at the Oscars website.
