What if Kanye's DONDA Did Movie Posters?

Depending on who you ask, the Oscars either got the Best Picture race as close to right as they’ve been in years this time around, or this year's big nominees are yet another group of basic awards-baiting films that fail to accurately represent the best film really had to offer in 2014. One thing’s basic for sure: the posters. The art of the one-sheet is slowly but surely becoming lost. When’s the last time a great movie had a truly fire accompanying poster that you just had to frame in your crib, let alone achieve iconic status?

In honor of the impending Academy Awards, artist Danny Scanzoni imagined what the eight best picture nominees would look like if DONDA, Kanye's design firm collective, designed their posters and brought them to life just to show you what the film game’s missing. Take a look at what surely would be Kanye West approved images below. If these are truly the Best Pictures, the most artistic achievements film delivered last year (and that's still up for debate), then they deserve the most artistic promotion. In the words of the man himself, respect the artistry. Trust us, these films have never looked more interesting.
