Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

THE definitive guide to the Academy Awards, from the very first ceremony to this year's 80th anniversary spectacular, includes EVERY nominee and winner in EVERY category--and has been fully updated to include the most recent winners and losers, unforgettable photographs, and highlights.

Written by film experts who are sought out every year for their insider knowledge of movies and Hollywood, this book is both a comprehensive reference and a detailed history of the Academy Awards, complete with each year's facts, highlights, and controversies--all told with authority and attitude.

Packed with more than 500 photographs from the Oscar ceremonies and red carpet as well as the movies themselves, it outdoes any other book on the market in both information and illustrations. And compared to boring "official" books with less reportage and much less color, this "unauthorized" book delivers what fans want most: ALL the facts, enhanced by juicy commentary and pictures galore.

Now in its fourth edition, it's the most popular, comprehensive, lavishly illustrated, and enjoyable Oscar book out there.

Synopsis:

This definitive guide to the Academy Awards includes every nominee and winner in every category--from the very first ceremony to this year's 80th anniversary spectacular. Full-color photographs throughout.

Synopsis:

You are invited to share eighty years of stars and statues, directors and presenters, all the winners and losers, and all the glamour and gossip that is Oscar. From the very first awards spectacular to the most recent, star-studded ceremony, this is the complete, unofficial history. Get the full story and all the facts: memorable images, behind-the-scenes and on-camera anecdotes, and unabridged lists by year and category of every nominee and every winner that has ever heard his or her name called on the brightest night in Hollywood.
