As soon as I heard today's announcements for the 2014 Academy Awards, I opened up Photoshop and whipped up these 15 mildly amusing honest poster alternatives in five minutes flat, because I'm just that talented. Seriously. These didn't take a month, no matter what you've heard. Off the cuff humour, each and every one. And that's the truth.

Ok, so I was wrong about that last one. It made sense though, right? If anything it's a disgraceful snub by the Academy... (*tugs at collar*)

If you would like to share these posters on your site, be a dear and just replicate a selection and not the whole collection - and leave the watermark on, if you please. If you are interested in acquiring high resolution, un-watermarked versions for publication in print or online, drop me an email.
