Oscar Gets 84 Best Picture Makeovers — PHOTOS

We feel you, Oscar. Sometimes you just need to shake up your look a little bit.

This week, the Oscars.com released an inspired series of posters in which the famous Oscar statue gets some makeovers inspired by the 84 Best Picture winners in Academy history. While some of the renderings land in the territory of predictable, but still enjoyable (Forrest Gump, Braveheart, and Silence of the Lambs, pictured), others are downright delightfully inspired (Oscar’s creepy haircut for No Country For Old Men, the strategically placed rose petals for American Beauty) and hauntingly perfect (the little girl in her red coat in Schindler’s List). Most fittingly of all, Crash is still the worst of the bunch.

You can see all of the Best Picture Oscars in one big poster here, but we’ve picked out some of our personal favorites. Look: 

The Silence of the Lambs

Expected? Of course. But this Oscar would still look awesome on your mantle next to some fava beans and a nice chianti.

The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King

Gollum would have been an especially awesome Oscar, but how can you not love some Hobbit hair?

No Country for Old Men

Speaking of awesomely terrible hair…

The English Patient

This is so wrong, but we don’t want to be right. 


Schindler’s List

The toughest one of the bunch to create for this series just so happened to turn out to be the best one. Kudos.
