The 84th "Academy Awards": Life. Camera. Action.

Sneak Peek the first poster supporting the telecast of the 84th "Academy Awards", created by graphic designer Anthony Goldschmidt and Mark and Karen Crawford of the design firm Blood&Chocolate.

The poster features the iconic 'Oscar' statuette alongside memorable images from eight films spanning eight decades: "Gone with the Wind" (1939), "Casablanca" (1943), "Giant" (1956), "The Sound of Music" (1965), "The Godfather" (1972), "Driving Miss Daisy" (1989), "Forrest Gump" (1994) and "Gladiator" (2000).

All  films featured on the poster won the Academy Award for Best Picture, except "Giant," for which George Stevens won the Oscar for Directing.

"Whether it's a first date or a holiday gathering with friends or family, movies are a big part of our memory," said Academy President Tom Sherak. "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."

Academy Awards for outstanding film achievements of 2011 will be presented Sunday, February 26, 2012, @ the Kodak Theatre, Hollywood & Highland Center, televised live by the ABC Television Network.

The Oscar presentation also will be televised live in more than 225 countries worldwide.
