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.
Jim Piazza is an essayist, screenwriter, and playwright. He has been a script analyst for Columbia, Fox, and Paramount Pictures. He is also the author of the lavish tribute to Elvis, The King (Black Dog & Leventhal). Gail Kinn has conceived and edited a wide range of film books including Screwball: The Great Romantic Comedies, Hollywood at Home: The Photographs of Sid Avery, and The Scorsese Picture. Kinn and Piazza are the coauthors of The Greatest Movies Ever (Black Dog & Leventhal).
