Academy Reveals 2012 Oscars Poster

Above is your first look at the poster for the 84th Academy Awards on Feb. 26.

Next to the Oscar statue are images from Gone with the Wind (1939), Casablanca (1943), Giant (1956), The Sound of Music (1965), The Godfather (1972), Driving Miss Daisy (1989), Forrest Gump (1994) and Gladiator (2000).

The poster was designed by Mark and Karen Crawford of Blood & Chocolate and Anthony Goldschmidt.

“Whether it’s a first date or a holiday gathering with friends or family, movies are a big part of our memory,” Tom Sherak, Academy president, said in a statement. “The Academy Awards not only honor the excellence of these movies, but also celebrate what they mean to us as a culture and to each of us individually.”
