Portuguese designer Teresa Gonçalves created these emoji movie posters as a tribute to this year's Oscar nominations. Each image makes use of a classic emoji to represent one of this year’s ground-breaking movies.

The comical collection of emoji movie posters is an honorable tribute to the brilliant cinematic films of Hollywood. For example, 'The Martian' is represented on a red background with a darker red circle placed behind a white circle. This graphic is topped with a yellow oval containing two eyes. Other films include 'Brooklyn,' 'The Big Short' and 'The Revenant.'

While the titles are added onto the poster of each movie, the art is so simplistic that it allows the audience to make a direct connection with the film that is being portrayed.
