79 Years of Best Picture Winners in Posters

This is an interesting list (from Movie Poster Addict) in many ways but not least because the Best Picture winners for approximately 75 out of 79 of those years are clearly not the best picture of that year and many are quite, ahem, ordinary films (The Great Ziegfeld, The Greatest Show on Earth, Around the World in Eighty Days, The Sting, Rocky, Braveheart, etc) which perhaps shouldn’t even have been nominated.

The art of the movie poster seems to have moved from paintings to photographs which in the case of the “who is she?” poster of Rebecca seems to be a good thing.

My favourite posters are All Quiet on the Western Front, All About Eve, West Side Story and Amadeus.
