Behind the Oscar :the secret history of the Academy Awardsby Anthony Holden
Synopses & Reviews
Book News Annotation:
It's venal, commercial, and self-congratulatory--that's not news. But lots of folks like details on how the mega-event is conducted and how the stars themselves feel, or say they feel, about the coveted award and its attendant hoopla and hype. A less than flattering portrait of the industry emerges in this loose compendium of anecdotes, gossip, and quotes. Appendices listing winners and losers and other stats occupy 160 pages; the bibliography is fairly long, but not classified.
