Janelle Monae's Breakout Year

One of my favourite artists of the decade. I've had the pleasure of seeing her live twice. I would've loved to see more of her in Moonlight. Loved that role and loved seeing her. -Roger

Curio: And The Nominees Are

Alexa here with your weekly art appreciation post. This being Oscar week, all the alternative poster designs for the nominated films are making the rounds: see the nominated films posterized as Legos, or as one-liners!  I prefer a less gimmicky, graphic-artist-inspired approach myself.  Unlike last year, the Oscar site does not feature alternative poster designs; I do wish the Academy would follow the lead of the BAFTAs on this.  

To fill the void here are my favorite designs for each of the nominated films.  Happy Oscars everyone! 



American Hustle by Harry Movie Art.


BAFTA design for 12 Years a Slave by La Boca. Nebraska by Geminianum.

Captain Phillips by Derek Eads.

Dallas Buyers Club by Hunter Langston.

Her by Sam Smith at The Dissolve.

Gravity by Peter Stults.

Philomena by Joe Fries.

Wolf of Wall Street by Me Myself and i.

The Gravity poster is my favorite and the most improved over the original. It's been my desktop wallpaper for a few months now even though Gravity isn't my favorite movie of the year, just in my top five. The American Hustle one, or Bullshit, is quite good too. And the one for 12 Years a Slave is stunning.

My favs here are American Hustle, Dallas Buyers Club, and Gravity. I like Her a lot too but it looks like they used a photo of Scarlett Johansson and that's tacky I think.

Now what's Christopher Walken doing on the American Hustle poster? Then again, Jeremy Renner has always looked like an extraterrestrial. And bullshit is certainly a good way to describe the Russell film.

It somehow seems fitting to include Christopher Walken in the poster of American Hustle. Not because Jeremy Renner looks so much like him, but because all I could think of while watching Alessandro Nivola's performance was: why is he doing a Walken impression?
