The 2007 Key Art Awards

in: 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
Running with Scissors Poster

Borat Poster

Thank You for Smoking
Thank You For Smoking Poster

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
a Scanner Darkly Poster

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
Deliver Us From Evil Poster

Sketches of Frank Gehry
Sketches of Frank Gehry Poster

Dave Chappelle’s Block Party

Dave Chappelle’s Block Party Poster

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
Little Children Poster

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.

    “The Descent” is NOT deserving of the win, because it is a direct RIP OFF of the photograph by Philippe Halsman (in collaboration with Salvador Dalí) called “In Voluptas Mors”. That’s from 1951. If you don’t mind a little artistic nudity, go ahead and google it out and see for yourself. RIP OFF :-D

    Graham is right. The (NOT SAFE FOR WORK) picture can be found here:

    The marketing team and the producers of the film don’t even credit this photograph, so I’d find it rather distasteful that they just rip it off. Aside from the woman on top, the poses are identical. Effectively used, perhaps, but certainly not original.

    James on June 22nd, 2007

    Yeah, The Descent poster is not very original, as you guys point out. But I still think using this image was a very good choice for this film, and the execution was really effective.

    nice posters but I don’t agree with any of your comments… seems like you’re stuck in the 60′s/70′s with a post-modernist outlook on current art. Kinda sad really.

    There is no such thing as ‘Weak’ that only applies if there is a standard that should be reached. An example is the Eistedfodd (a celebration of Welsh culture) it sometimes happens that no poem/song/exhibition/recital reaches the level demanded of 1st place and thus no 1st prize is awarded. To apply that to movie posters is ludicrise.

    The Superman Returns poster is excellent the V for Vendetta almost looks like a NAZI propoganda poster.

    Just my opinion…

    The Halsman/Dali picture was also used in the Silence of the Lambs poster.

    The Hard Candy poster is my favorite btw.

    The Desent poster is a rip-off of a Salvador Dali image.

    Hmmmm rather undermines the judging when The Salvador Dali skull images wins. I can assume one of the following:

    * the judges have no art background — no validity to their judgement then in my opinion and the prize is meaningless.
    * They recognise the copy and don’t care as the image is appropriate. A distinct possibility, after all the womans pose at the top is NOT different as claimed by another poster but there is a woman missing, the number of women being significant. In anycase, if submitting a barely altered piece of easily recognised art is rewarded with first place — the prize is meaningless.

    Utter nonsense post modernist rubbish.

    Since we’re all talking about how Dali was ripped off, I’d like to point out that (while it isn’t plagiarism) the Superman Returns poster looks similar to another Dali painting: Christ of Saint John of the Cross

    In any case, that pose is Jesus-y.

    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.
