British graphic designer and illustrator Olly Moss has designed a commemorative poster in collaboration with Gallery1988 that features 85 Oscar statues inspired by the Best Picture winners from 1927-2012. The design for 1989 features the Oscar wearing a cap and holding a steering wheel, depicting Driving Miss Daisy, while the Oscar for 2003 is shorter, with hairy feet and a ring on it’s necklace, for The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King.

Other statues feature iconic poses and moments from the films, like the upstretched arms of the Oscar for Platoon and the rose petals falling in front of the Oscar for American Beauty. The special edition poster is part of ‘For Your Consideration’, a collaborative exhibition by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences and Gallery1988.

These aren’t available for purchase but fans will have opportunities to win limited edition posters. Gallery1988 will give away free posters to the first 100 people who visit the gallery at a specified time. Fans who don’t live in L.A. can find out about poster giveaway opportunities by following the Academy on Twitter and Facebook. Click through to see some of Moss’ Best Picture tribute Oscars:
