You can tell it's almost time for the 86th annual Academy Awards as the heavens are about to open here in L.A. for some much needed rain, and you can bet Hollywood stylists and starlets alike are hoping not to get drenched on the red carpet this year. The Oscars are the grand finale of a stretched out awards season and there've been more than a few movies campaigning around the skies of L.A. this month to secure those all-important votes. Here's a selection of Oscar consideration ad creatives, plus more new movie billboards from around the city streets in February 2014.
I did love this striking Amy Adams ad creative though, and if you like this, be sure to check out these other Oscar consideration billboards for American Hustle I spied this month too.
Oscar billboards for The Wolf of Wall Street, and more besides.
If you like these ads, be sure to also check out more movie awards billboards from last month's round-up.
The billboard campaign was great as you can see, but ultimately I found the film totally unnecessary, and had some truly dodgy CGI which totally spoiled the believability factor of our central hero character.
Maybe studios should actually concentrate on making great films and stop trying to make franchises happen. Next up though is Divergent, so let's see how that fares.
Personally I boycotted the Winter Olympics because of where they were held and Russia's treatment of its LGBT community, which sadly will probably continue and get even worse now that the spotlight is no longer on the country's horrific crimes against its gay citizens, and celebrities and politicians can conveniently forget about their plight again.
As you can see there've been lots of eye-catching billboards this month and there's still the TV billboard round-up yet to come, so be sure to stay tuned to check those out too.
Now I'd better go get my best frock ready for that Oscar red carpet on Sunday...
