Oscars por palavras

Estamos em plena temporada de Oscars. Os prémios mais conhecidos do mundo do cinema, referentes à produção de 2006, serão atribuídos a 25 de Fevereiro de 2007 (sendo as nomeações anunciadas cerca de um mês antes, a 23 de Janeiro). Hoje, a Academia de Artes e Ciências Cinematográficas de Hollywood divulgou o seu cartaz oficial, uma magnífica proeza visual que revaloriza o peso das palavras na memória e mitologia dos filmes: o fundo do poster é feito com algumas dezenas de célebres de linhas de diálogo — de "Good evening Clarice" até "Stella!" —, definindo uma espécie de painel falado do imenso património cinematográfico.
