I think it all depends on licensing. The fact that they are giving them away makes me suspect they may not have the likeness rights but maybe they do.
I can't see them not having full licensing. This is essentially a pet project of the Academy of Motion Pictures and I couldn't, for the life of me, see why they wouldn't or couldn't have gotten pretty much total control over what was available.
Meh, I could be completely wrong, I don't know how it all works. I do know that just because the Academy is involved it doesn't mean all the studios/actors are.
I guessed wrong. PCC confirmed they will have no prints available for sale. That doesn't mean no artist will, but it does imply it.

Ouch! I have Budich's Anchorman print and it's fantastic.
I have Budich's Life Aquatic print and it's fantastic.
I have his silver variant LOST print and it is stellar.

Right..but it's going to be 4 days of the SDCC food court in front of their building. I can't wait to read all about the happenings. 8)

Sure this link is somewhere in this thread, but I don't feel like looking for it. May help those still trying to figure out what is going on with the prints.

The Englert and Kelly are my favorites.

If they are giving away hundreds of free copies, I would imagine they are lithos--although the article specifically says that they are screenprints. I'd be much happier missing out on these if they were lithos.

Speaking for myself, I enjoyed looking at the pictures online today. But I am not entertaining any thoughts of actually owning any of these.

Think it would be awesome if they rotate the drops between Melrose and Venice. That way it's anyone's ball game. :wink:

I don't know more than anyone else, but on the G1988 twitter, there is mention of outside of L.A. opportunities to get these:

Gallery1988 ‏@Galleries1988
@rhyman77 there are opportunities for everyone


and

Gallery1988 ‏@Galleries1988
@raydogg3 Our friends at the Oscars are dealing with all the outside of LA stuff.


and then in the press release on the Oscars site:

Fans outside the Los Angeles area can find out about poster giveaway opportunities by following the Academy on Twitter (@TheAcademy) and Facebook (TheAcademy).
