theacademy On this day in 1964, Stanley Kubrick’s comedy, "Dr. Strangelove or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb" was released in theaters. The director originally planned on an ending that included a pie fight which included his star Peter Sellers. After filming the fight, Kubrick later decided it didn’t fit into the story. “I decided it was farce and not consistent with the satiric tone of the rest of the film,” Kubrick explained in an interview in 1969.

  •   anilzzon @nandolugo seriously I KNOW WHAT WINNING AN OSCAR IS & HOW BIG THAT IS. I've watched it many times. Everyone has right to their OWN opinion . No need for your or anyone else to spam me w comments like that. You have dragged out this little thing to a BIG thing. Still dosen't change anything no matter how hard you try. 22h
  •   nandolugo @anilzzon I apologize if I came across arrogant or rude; however, my comment wasn't meant to tell you that winning an Oscar is a big deal. I was establishing that the Academy Awards is a more serious show. I was informing you why MTV and Academy have performers so you understand why Rita isn't performing all her hits. Have a nice day! 21h

theacademy From this year’s Oscars Art Gallery. This work is by Mogollon, United States

Mogollon: "For this assignment we were thinking about the Oscar statue as the 'Movie Star.' We wanted it to literally be in the spot light and the focus of all eyes. Stylistically, we were influenced by some of the design elements of the Deco era that characterize the period in which the Oscars [were] created as well as the Golden Age of Hollywood films. Since the Oscar is the star of this composition, we made sure not to overpower its presence by keeping our lines and colors simple and elegant."

Paddington- a family film about love, loss and triumph, was not nominated for an Oscar. Nay, not even considered. Meanwhile titles like "Selma" and "American Sniper" seem to be getting all the recognition. I can't help but feel disappointed in your establishment. Please reconsider your nominations and moral values. Thank you. 5d

theacademy From this year’s Oscars Art Gallery. This work is by Steve Wilson, United Kingdom

Steve Wilson: "The design is heavily influenced by the era in which the Oscars originated, the art deco glamour at the beginning of the golden age of film. I liked the idea that I could look back to the past but draw it with such a modern, technical and digital aesthetic. I think this represents modern film making and modern day creativity of any kind. While the possibilities of today are now endless with what modern technology has to offer, so much is owed to the past and what has gone before."

theacademy From this year’s Oscars Art Gallery. This work is by Jonny Wan, United Kingdom

Jonny Wan: "The Academy has always played a monumental part in creating a culture that cultivates the best in creative and intellectual achievements. From the advancement of technology to the bold and imaginative craft created by its members, it has given life to the greatest stories ever told.

That being said, it was very important for me to create an illustration that paid homage to these branches of craft on and off screen. I used bold geometric shapes and lavish ornamentation to give it an Art Deco feel but with a playful contemporary twist. My response was to create something that visually reflected not only the luxury and exuberance of the Academy Awards but also represented the faith in progress, change and unlimited imagination."

theacademy From this year’s Oscars Art Gallery. This work is by Hattie Stewart, United Kingdom

Hattie Stewart: "For my piece I wanted to create a multi layered Oscars universe... As my design revolves around the iconic Oscars statue, all elements are interacting and interlinking around it as the 'icon' of this world. The piece is also designed to look like this imaginary world is coming forth from the statue itself.
Subtle homages to the Hollywood Dolby Theater create the stage for this world and act as the anchor for the Oscars statue... I have used the heart characters as subtle references to [the] different genres of film like musicals and dramas but they also express the frenzied excitement ever present during the Oscars. This element of the design is important to me to show the 'possibilities' the Oscars provide aren't just for one night, but all year round."

theacademy From this year’s Oscars Art Gallery, designed by Alex Trochut from Spain, who says, "Letter forms are a way of expressing non verbal communication [and] when done thoughtfully, a visual communication similar to picking the right dress for the Oscar red carpet. For this particular project, I selected influences from Art Deco and Avant Garde found on the red carpet.”
