The Academy Awards : the complete unofficial history

Kinn, Gail2011
Updated to include the 2009 and 2010 Oscars, this is the definitive guide to the Academy Awards including every nominee and winner in every category, plus red carpet highlights, unforgettable photographs, and insider information from onstage and behind the scenes. Written by film experts Jim Piazza and Gail Kinn, who are sought out every year for their insider knowledge of movies and Hollywood, The Academy Awards is both a handy reference and a detailed history of the Academy Awards, complete with each year's facts, highlights, and controversies, all told with authority and fun. It packed with more than 500 photographs from the Oscar ceremonies and red carpet as well as the movies themselves, it outdoes any other book on the market in both information and illustrations. Compared to boring, 'official' books with less insider information and reportage, and much less color, this unauthorized book delivers what fans want most: all the facts, enhanced by juicy commentary and pictures galore.
