65 Years of the Oscars - The Official History of the Academy Awards/Cassell's Movie Quotations
This is the history of the Hollywood Academy Awards. It covers the winners for the period 1928 to 1993 and highlights the memorable occasions in 630 photographs. It is an update of "60 Years of the Oscar" and includes a new chapter on the events of the years 1988 to 1993.
Published under the auspices of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, this oversized, richly illustrated keepsake features a year-by-year account of the ceremonies from 1929 through 1992, in brief chapters rife with anecdotes, major upsets, and quotations. It includes complete listings of all nominees for each year. If you're seeking muckraking and the inside scoop, look to one of the "unofficial" Oscar books (such as Anthony Holden's Behind the Oscar: The Secret History of the Academy Awards), but this handsome volume does a fine job telling the official story.
Hard cover in as new condition.
