Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Every movie buff knows that it's not just the blockbusters that take home the awards; often the films that get the least hype garner the prizes. But what's the inside track to winning an award, and what do they all mean? In Movie Awards: The Ultimate, Unofficial Guide to the Oscars, Golden Globes, Critics, Guild & Indie Honors, Hollywood expert Tom O'Neil (author of Variety's The Emmys and The Grammys) leads film aficionados through every annual awards race since the silver screen's earliest days, in which directors, producers, technicians and, of course, stars try to win as many trophies as they can before reaching the finish line at the Oscars.

This directory of film awards from 1927 to 1999 offers full coverage of the Academy Awards as well as the prizes given out by the Golden Globes, Directors Guild, Writers Guild, Screen Actors Guild, Producers Guild, National Society of Film Critics, New York Film Critics Circle, Los Angeles Film Critics Association, Broadcast Film Critics Association, National Board of Review, Independent Spirits, and the Sundance Film Festival. Chronologically arranged, each entry includes a critical commentary of the awards' procedures and voting, lists of nominees and winners, behind-the-scenes happenings, announcement dates and places, and one or two small black-and-white pictures. Movie Awards concludes with a two-page commentary on each of the above groups, a chronological list of best pictures (great for quick comparisons), "kudos counts" (most awards, most nominations, trivia), nonwinners, journalists' awards, voters, and a title and name index. O'Neil writes in the breezy Variety style, which makes for good browsing, but he always zeroes in on the significant factoids and quotes. Numerous excellent books chronicle the Oscars (Robert Osborne's 70 Years of the Oscar, Abbeville, 1999) or cite awards (Peter Mowrey's Award-Winning Films, McFarland, 1993), but none combines pure pleasure and fact so well, at such a good price. Essential for all libraries. Anthony J. Adam, Prairie View A&M Univ. Lib., TX Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
