Thomand
A well organized summary and critical reviews of the first 70 years of Oscar history (1928- 1998). It comes complete as an attractive oversized book with an invaluable index of actors, characters and films. Although not cheap, the book is organized by year within each decade, with tightly written intros to each year that includes the candidates for "best" in each category, a summary of plots, lists of liner entries such as cast, directors, producers, etc.

Each year's entry is a mini-reproduction of the Oscar night event in itself. Well done and richer in details than could have reasonably been expected, with official photos (and posters) of Oscar night as well as clips from the winning films.

The book would have been much richer if it had contained more color photos. Full page (or even larger size) entries of the posters, for instance, would have been priceless.

In an era of u-tube, Facebook and the internet, this format is surely to be soon overtaken (if it has not already), but for nostalgic film buffs for the hollywood of old, this book is a rare feast. Four stars

This hefty tome by Robert Osborne, columnist and critic for THE HOLLYWOOD REPORTER, is a cinephile's dream! The author has exhaustively researched the history of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences from its origin in the 1920s and includes a detailed chronology of the popular Academy Awards. This is a must-have for any movie buff. The over-sized book will attract even casual movie fans who might pick it up off your coffee-table and start skimming through the over-350 pages jam-packed with photos, quotes, and anecdotes of the first 70 years of the Oscars.

I bought and I bought again...gave it away and then couldn't be without it...there is a downside; you'll find yourself boring everyone at parties with the Best Film Oscar of their Birth Year Challenge...but if the anorak fits, wear it I say..it's an Oscar winning performance by Osborne.....
