The Academy announced its nominees this morning for Best Picture, Best Director and beyond. The Billy Crystal-hosted ceremony airs on Feb. 26, but we ask now: Will the Best Picture winner inspire a tattoo? We researched tattoos for the past 40 years’ worth of Oscar winners and found that a lot of them moved people to get an ink tribute. Check out 15 below, from “The Godfather” to “The Departed.” As for this year…a “Moneyball” tattoo? Although the Pitt-led film won’t win, there’s got to be someone who wants a back piece with a puffy Jonah Hill.
