Last year, in the lead up to the 2018 Oscars, we did a design analysis of some of the Best Picture nominees’ official movie posters. Our designers graded the posters using four agreed-upon criteria: hierarchy, focal point, tone, and layout.
However, whereas last year’s post was in more of a “give everybody a Glantzified swag bag” vein, this year things got a little more cutthroat: six Glantzers (four designers, one creative director, and one client happiness officer) pored over the posters, evaluating and ranking them.
The result? Glantz Design’s definitive rankings for the 2019 Oscars’ Best Picture nominees’ official movie posters, or OBPNOMPs. That’s right, folks: one of these posters is going home with an orange Oscar figurine.
In a nail biter, “BlacKKKlansman” edged out “Roma” to claim the top spot. A big thank you to all the posters that participated, and a big “break a leg!” to the eight films competing for Best Picture this weekend!
