Artist Olly Moss was tasked with depicting a reference to every single Best Picture on one poster, for the 85 Years of Oscar one-sheet. As you can see from the hint above, he took a fun, and detail-oriented approach to the task. What’s the blank pedestal in the middle? Well, how would you depict A Beautiful Mind?

Nevertheless, Affleck and his film Argo have turned into an awards juggernaut, starting with the Best Motion Picture (Drama) and Best Director awards at the Golden Globes, and rolling through various critics groups before taking the ensemble cast award from the Screen Actors Guild, and the top awards from the Directors and Producers guilds.
And now, Argo has won Best Editing, Best Director, and Best Film at the BAFTAs. The list of winners, via the organziation’s press release, is below. Read More »

With awards season in full swing, both the Screen Actors Guild and the Producers Guild of America handed out prizes for their favorites of 2012 this past weekend. The big winner at both ceremonies turned out to be Ben Affleck‘s Argo, which had also previously picked up Golden Globes for Best Director and Best Motion Picture – Drama earlier this month. That positions Argo at the front of this year’s Best Picture Oscar race, though if it wins, it’ll be the rare film to do so without getting a Best Director nomination. Only three films in Oscar history have managed to win Best Picture without an accompanying Best Director nomination, the last to do so being Driving Miss Daisy in 1989.
Other notable victories in the film categories included Searching for Sugar Man and Wreck-It Ralph at the PGA Awards, and Lincoln (Daniel Day-Lewis and Tommy Lee Jones), Silver Linings Playbook (Jennifer Lawrence), and Les Miserables (Anne Hathaway) at the SAG Awards. Small screen winners included Homeland and Game Change. Hit the jump to read the full list of awards. Read More »
