Actor/Director Oscar Photo Shoot

Via Variety this morning, I stumbled across a really nice looking photo shoot of ten director/actor photo shoots from the 2008 movie season that account for some four dozen Oscar nominations. Each photo is quite handsome and were obviously done some time ago as Ledger appears in one of the photos.

All shots were captured by photographer Annie Leibovitz and more information about each one can be found over at Variety if you’d like. Feel free to click on any image to get a slightly bigger version…

THE RINGERS

So are these great shots or what? Or was this just an excuse for me to post yet another Penélope Cruz photo? You decide. The rest of the photos can be seen under the seats below (the last one is kind of amusing I think).

Actually, I think Ledger's photo is an old promotional one from 'Brokeback Mountain' and they superimposed Nolan into it.

Yup Yup – my fave of the bunch is the Winslet/Mendes one as well. Leibovitz is genius, and a woman in a male dominated arena. Double goodness.

Rourke/Aronofsky, Ledger/Nolan, and Kidman/Luhrmann are my faves. I wish there was a Hathaway/Demme one!

Sean Penn and Clint Eastwood looks good in these, but I don't why? If you're just going to glorify, do their hair and make-up and all, what's the point? Just to sell glossy bullshit Variety Magazine I guess.

The Mendes/Winslet one is disgusting. What is it showing? Is she trying to get away? He is holding her? Lame. Marraige = Physical contact. There's publicity for you.
