With the biggest night in the world of film fast approaching what better way to gear up for the next Academy Awards than to take a look back at some of our favourite film posters of past winners.
West Side Story bagged a total of 10 oscars in 1961, including the most coveted Best Picture to make it the 2nd highest Oscar winner of all-time (behind joint first Ben-Hur, Titanic and Lord of the Ring's which each won 11). We love the UK Quad which features a fabulous design by Brian Bysouth incorporating artwork by Bob Peak.

Other Best Picture winners with equally fantastic poster designs include Norman Jewison's gritty In The Heat of the Nightand the all-time classic My Fair Ladystarring Audrey Hepburn and Rex Harrison.

Only three films have ever managed to get 'The Big Five' – Best Picture, Director, Actor, Actress and Screenplay. It Happened One Nightin 1934, 1975's One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest and 1991's The Silence of the Lamb.

Another of our favourites is this Polish poster for Roman Holiday which won a total of 3 Oscars at the 1954 Academy awards. Audrey Hepburn won Best Actress, Dalton Trumbo got Best Story and Edith Heads won Best Costume design.  It was Edith's 5th Oscar as head of costume and she went on to win a further three making her the most successful woman ever at the Oscars!

Here's the fabulous Polish poster for Tootsie which in 1982 received 10 oscars nominations, yet only won one for Jessica Lange as supporting actress.

Finally, no Oscar round-up could be completed without mention of Walt Disney who has racked up the most Oscars ever with a whopping 22! We love the amazing quirky artwork on the Czech Mary Poppins.
