70 Years of the Oscar: The Official History of the Academy Awards Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Entertaining text and star-studded photographs present the story of the Academy
Awards, from their beginnings in 1927 to the return to the golden age of Hollywood
with Titanic at the 1998 awards.
70 Years of the Oscar, newly revised and expanded, is the official history of
the Academy Awards. It begins with a general history of the Academy of Motion
Picture Arts and Sciences and the birth of the Oscars, followed by in-depth
coverage of each year's awards. Author Robert Osborne surveys the nominees,
recounts speculation on possible winners, describes the events of the actual
ceremonies, and provides a complete listing of the nominees and winners in every
category, making this the only comprehensive book on the most important awards
in show business.
The nearly 700 candid pictures of the evening's events, stills from the movies,
and original posters for every best picture round out each section. Combining
Robert Osborne's knowledge and the Academy's exceptional archives, this book is
unrivaled in illustration, accuracy, and comprehensiveness.
Robert Osborne is a columnist and critic for The Hollywood Reporter and a daily
on-camera host for The Movie Channel cable television network. He has written
more than 10 books on the film world.
690 illustrations, 60 in full color
