Oscar crafts alternative mystery plan

| | Comments (0) | TrackBacks (0)

Still going! Producers of the Oscars continue to insist that the show will go on as planned Feb. 24, but now the plans are beginning to change. According to Variety, the usual show is in the works — but there's also an alternative plan if the strike lingers on another month. What that alternative is remains a mystery, "but it's likely that the alternative show would rely on industry heavyweights penning their own speeches and presenting the awards."

Either way, they released the 80th Oscars poster for the year ...


Look kinda familiar? Those starbursts? The vertical design? The creator is veteran poster illustrator Drew Struzan, who designed the posters for the "Star Wars" films.

The poster is available for sale beginning today at the Oscars site.
