Because Second Guessing is Fun: The Key Art Awards

in: Awards

So, the Key Art Awards winners were announced this weekend in such categories as best campaign, best action/adventure/horror trailer and a bunch of others that no one here cares about. Now, about the posters…

Action/Adventure/Horror Posters

I was initially a little bothered that my very favorite category, horror posters, had been put together with Action and Adventure this year. Then I noticed all the posters were Horror posters. The adventure and action poster selection must have been pretty bad, because this isn’t a particularly strong selection of horror posters.

Looking at my horrors of 2007 post I can’t say I see any domestic poster from 2007 that really belonged here instead of the nominees, so I’m not complaining about the choices. And Grindhouse also seems like the obvious winner, so no problem with that either.

How could Juno, this year’s Little Miss Sunshine, not win the category that the actual Little Miss Sunshine took last year? Perfectly obvious, non-offensive choice. But honestly I still personally like The Darjeeling Limited and the Superbad posters more. And I’m still not feeling the Walk Hard poster.

The Taxi to the Dark Side poster is pretty famous by now. But the Zoo poster is the one I’m most attached to. Feels haunting.
