Poster? (I Hardly Even Knew Her!)

Ooohs and ahhs, y'all: the official Oscar posters have been unveiled.

And, yes, in the male one it certainly does look like Oscar is standing in for a big, golden phallus. Not like he hasn't always been viewed as such. I'm choosing to view that poster as an avant garde statement against the dearth of Best Actress contenders this year. Of course, it would have made for better symmetry if the female poster were holding a pair of Golden Globes. I'm saying!

Anyway, crudeness aside, here's what I'm wondering: The posters are supposedly culled from "vintage photos of Oscar winners from the past." So why hasn't the Internet already sussed out which headless torsos are being featured? Don't tell me everyone has had something better to do today. There has to be some Oscar obsessive out there who knows those poses by heart. Hop to it, fanatics!

[pseudo-editor's note: I feel kind of like a deadbeat dad this week, blogging with my secret family across town while my own blog goes negelected and hungry. I'm a polyblogamist, and I don't think I'm too proud of it. Anyhoo, I hope to entertain you while Nathaniel's gone.]

I new I had seen the female one before!

I think (don't ask me why) that the man is Frank Sinatra.

Nathaniel, your weblog has been nominated for the SPOILER AWARD in the Best Cinematographic Concept.
The nomination is kind of debatable, as you're an insane Spielberg hater, but congratulations anyway. Here's the link: http://www.spoiler.blogger.com.br/.

Yes, the male one does look like a stand in for a male phallus. But isn't that what Oscars are, anyway? A compensation for actors who receive them.
