The Academy has just revealed 84 different Oscar statuettes inspired by past winners and created by artist Olly Moss for a special edition poster for this year's Oscars. The poster, which collects all 84 images (plus a new one for this year's winner) is on sale now right here.

Moss designed the commemorative poster in collaboration with Gallery1988 and the final poster will feature 85 Oscar statuettes once the winner of this year's Oscars is announced on February 24.

The press release announcing the project included the following bio on Moss, whose work I'm sure many of you are already familiar with:

Moss, a graduate of the University of Birmingham, is best known for such works as the Thor cast poster for Marvel Entertainment, the cover artwork for the "Resistance 3" video game, and his recent book "Silhouettes" from Popular Culture. One of the most sought-after screen print artists working today, Moss has created illustrations for "The New York Times" and "The Guardian," and is commissioned by Empire magazine to design a new movie poster illustration every month.

Moss called the assignment one of the hardest he's ever had on his official website.

I have grabbed all 84 individual posters that have been released so far and included them over the next several pages and while I'm sure you'll recognize most of them, there are some that do not have the title on them, so before you begin, here's a list of all the Best Picture winners:

The brief was one of the hardest I’ve ever had; find a way to reference every single Best Picture winner from the last 85 years

Thanks to Gallery 1988 for putting my name forward and organising this whole shebang. 

btw you can buy it here for $35 - https://www.globalfulfillment.net/gfsnet/academyoscars/10browse.aspx

this also makes me wonder how long he had to do this poster. because really, this is like doing 85 individual posters when we look at the close up shots of each movie.
and what the hell, heres a couple of moss's most well known work:
