We’re knee deep in Oscar season, and while it’s gauche these days to care about who wins or loses, I nevertheless usually get a kick out of some of the For Your Consideration Posters that studios pay exorbitant rates to the trades to run, even though no one reads the trades anymore because they’ve already read everything on Deadline and Slashfilm, who will run the same posters for free. Not that Oscar voters care about For Your Consideration Posters; they just ask themselves, “Which after-party has the most hookers and blow,” and they vote for that studio’s film accordingly. Rich old white men need all the help they can get (shhhhh. It’s because their penises are wrinkly).
Anyway, I gandered around this morning and found a few of the most inventive, creative, and plain preposterous For Your Consideration Posters I could find and I pasted them below for your visual enjoyment (a couple may even be fan-made).
