Available in Stock
At the first Oscars night in 1929, twelve Academy Awards were presented in front of an audience of about 270. Since then the film industry has grown enormously, and the awards and the ceremony have grown with it. Tracing that development year by year, this official history draws on the Academy's historical and photographic archives to review the first eight decades of the Oscars and provide detailed listings of the nominees and winners in every category.
