This year's Oscar poster proclaims Celebrate the movies in all of us!

I just saw this years' poster design for the Oscars on deadline.com. It was designed by Anthony Goldschmidt, and Mark and Karen Crawford of Blood&Chocolate, and features eight images of Oscar-winning movies - 5 of which are based on best selling books. The Best Picture winning movies are Gone with the Wind (1939), Casablanca (1943), The Sound of Music (1965), The Godfather (1972), Driving Miss Daisy (1989), Forrest Gump (1994) and Gladiator (2000). Also pictured is Giant (1956) which didn't win the Best Picture award but did garner a Best Director for George Stevens. Not sure what the thinking was on that one! I also think they could have included a film from this  century! 

What I do like is the headline."Life. Camera. Action." and the tagline "Celebrate the movies in all of us" because it's true. Films - whether they are based on a book - or come completely from a screenwriter's imagination, are grounded in the stories of our lives.

We are the movies, pure and simple.
