Recommended Books @ Amazon.com

70 Years of the Oscar: The Official History of the Academy Awards: "The only book officially sanctioned by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, this hefty tome presents the history of the movies through the lens of the industry's central organizing body. Robert Osborne, a columnist and critic for the Hollywood Reporter, uses a crisp, engaging style to discuss film developments and movie trends during 70 years of Academy Awards. Each year of the Oscars is covered in detail, with an introduction that summarizes the year's movie highlights, nominees, and winners, followed by a complete listing of nominees and winners in all categories. Serious students of film and trivia buffs alike will spend hours poring over this wealth of information that adds a fascinating historical perspective to the glitz and glam of the Oscars."

The Academy Awards Handbook: "A guide to award-winning movies and their stars offers a year-by-year listing of all nominees and winners, an analysis of how films and stars are selected, a thorough index, and advice on how to identify forthcoming winners."

Oscar Fever: The History & Politics of the Academy Awards: "Oscar Fever is a completely new and far more popular rewriting of 'And the Winner is...'(1987;1990). It is both history and appreciation, chockablock with inside stories and little-known facts. Included are all the latest facts and statistics, as well as film stills, nostalgic and new, to tell the inside story of Oscar and what the awards really say about our times."

Behind the Oscar: The Secret History of the Academy Awards: "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."

Star Style of the Academy Awards: A Century of Glamour: "From Patty Fox, a fashion coordinator of the Academy Awards, comes the definitive glamour book on the Academy Awards-the most viewed fashion show on earth. In stunning black-and-white and color photography, author Fox highlights the historic gown and the stars who wore them."
