Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
This account, an update of the author's 60 Years of the Oscar (LJ 6/1/89), is organized around decade-length segments of the Motion Picture Academy's history. Each segment opens with a reckoning of the academy's activities followed by a year-by-year roundup of the OscarR ceremonies. All the nominees, plus the technical and special award winners, are listed. Photos abound, many in color. Over 120 OscarR winners, from Frank Capra to Emma Thompson, offer memories of their big night. Libraries should note, however, that the same basic data, with much more behind-the-scenes color, can be found in Mason Wiley and Damien Bona's Inside Oscar (LJ 3/1/ 86).-Thomas Wiener, formerly with ``American Film''
Mary Frances Wilkens
Any households that are tuned into Hollywood would be honored to have this monumental compendium on their coffee table when they literally tune into Hollywood--for Oscar night. Osborne's look back at 65 years of the Academy Awards delivers not only trivia all moviegoers love to be challenged by (like the "only twins to win Oscars" and "most nominated non-winning performers"), but also page after page of photographs both from the movies themselves and from the Oscar presentations. Added are more than 120 "Oscar memories," where past winners like Katharine Hepburn, Frank Capra, and Bob Hope tell us a bit about their Academy Award experiences. But what makes this beautiful and entertaining book so special is the year-by-year account of each Oscar night, complete with extensively captioned photos from the big six categories (best actor and actress, best supporting actor and actress, best director, and best film) as well as a listing of the nominees and winners of every other category awarded. The award ceremony takes place in March these days; expect patrons to put this must-have title on reserve in December!
