Academy Awards Poster

WIth the Oscars less than two months away, it comes as no surprise that the new poster for the big night was unveiled just this morning.

Of course...

Front and center is the gold man himself. He is surrounded by iconic images from Gone With the Wind, Casablanca, Giant, The Sound of Music, The Godfather, Driving Miss Daisy, Forrest Gump, Gladiator and Giant.

The top is adorned with three simple words: "Life. Camera. Action."

A tagline toward the bottom reads, "Celebrate the movies in all of us."

"Whether it's a first date or a holiday gathering with friends or family, movies are a big part of our memory," Academy president Tom Sherak said in a statement. "The Academy Awards not only honor the excellence of these movies, but also celebrate what they mean to us as a culture and to each of us individually."

The 84th annual Academy Awards takes place Feb. 26 and will be televised live from the Kodak Theatre in Hollywood on ABC.

Nominations will be announced Jan. 24.
