The 2007 Key Art Awards

The winners of the 2007 Key Art Awards were announced this weekend. Here are the nominees and winners in the poster categories, together with a little bit of commentary.


Running With Scissors

Borat Poster

Thank You for Smoking

Nacho Libre
Nacho Libre Poster

Little Miss Sunshine (Winner)

Little Miss Sunshine Poster

I’m not a big fan of the Nacho Libre poster, but otherwise a very strong category. I love the clever visual puns, and the yellow Little Miss Sunshine poster with the characters running after the bus is iconic by now.


Superman Returns
Superman Returns Poster

Poseidon Poster

Apocalypto Poster

V for Vendetta (Winner)
V For Vendetta Poster

A weak category this year. The V for Vendetta poster does stand out and I agree completely that it’s the best of the group.


A Scanner Darkly

Renaissance Poster

Monster House
Monster House Poster

Cars Poster

Ice Age: The Meltdown (Winner)
Ice Age 2 Poster

Again, not a very strong category this year. The Ice Age Poster is very good tough, and pretty cute.


The U.S. vs. John Lennon
The US Vs. John Lennon Poster

Deliver Us From Evil

Sketches of Frank Gehry

Dave Chappelle’s Block Party

An Inconvenient Truth (Winner)
An Inconvenient Truth Poster

Last year’s documentaries had some truly amazing posters. I love them all, but the one for An Inconvenient Truth is truly something else. As a matter of fact, the marketing for that film was uniformly superb.


Clean Poster

Little Children

Pan’s Labyrinth
Pan’s Labyrinth Poster

Perfume: The Story of a Murderer
Perfume Poster

Hard Candy (Winner)
Hard Candy Poster

A very good selection, and the Hard Candy poster is great and many people love it. But for me both the poster for Perfume and the poster for Pan’s Labyrinth were more beautiful and more memorable.


Saw III – Blood
Saw III Poster

The Hills Have Eyes
The Hills Have Eyes Poster

Pulse Poster

Saw III Teeth

Descent (Winner)
The Descent Poster

Saw III gets two entries. And it probably deserves it too, since all the posters for the movie, and for the series in general, have been amazing. I also love the poster for Pulse. But the poster for The Descent is a most deserving winner. Truly memorable, and truly creepy. And the film is pretty good to boot.


Hostel Poster

Tyler Perry’s Madea’s Family Reunion
Tyler Perry’s Madea’s Family Reunion Poster

Borat Teaser Poster

V for Vendetta
V for Vendetta Teaser Poster

Crank (Winner)
Cran Reaser Poster

The Crank teaser is pretty good, but I think I like Borat more.

If you are interested in buying some of these posters, you can get most of them from Allposters or from Movie Poster Warehouse.

Thanks to IMPAwards and to Posterwire for pointing out these awards, and also for being two excellent sites in general.

  2. Nice post. I was checking continuously this blog and I’m impressed! Very helpful information particularly the last part :) I care for such info a lot. I was looking for this certain info for a very long time. Thank you and good luck.

  3. Occasionally patients ask if they’re able to get enslaved by stimulants. Some patients are nervous about taking stimulants, fearing insomnia or feeling jittery. Adults who attend college with ADHD really have trouble. Writing your steps that had been once followed is usually very of great help for adults with ADHD. A further concern is most adults with attention deficit disorder disorder tend not to are aware that they’ve it and it’s not treated.
