85 YEARS OF OSCAR: OFFICIAL HISTORY OF ACADEMY

Summary

For the film industry, the Academy Awards is the most celebrated and most significant night of the year: everyone longs for the recognition of being nominated to win a little golden statuette. For most of us, however, even a walk down the red carpet is just a dream. 85 Years of the Oscar puts readers into those iconic plush seats for the thrill of the Academy Awards, from the first show in 1928, shortly after the introduction of the talking picture, to this year’s eighty-fifth anniversary. With hundreds of photographs and an informative text by Hollywood insider Robert Osborne, 85 Years of the Oscar is the official history of the Academy Awards. Organized by year, this book chronicles the ceremonies themselves, as well as the accomplishments, trends, developments, and events that occurred, both within the Academy and for the film industry as a whole. Osborne comments on each year’s most important films and shares the stories behind them. He also transports readers into the awards show, quoting from notable acceptance speeches and celebrity reactions, as well as regaling readers with anecdotes from each year. All award nominees and winners are listed, with a special listing of Oscar record-holders. An indispensable and encyclopedic reference for the amateur and expert alike, from the struggling actor to the film critic, this book has been a popular favorite since its first edition was published twenty-four years ago, just after the sixtieth awards ceremony. It provides an authority and depth of coverage found nowhere else, and it is sure to please movie-goers around the world.
