History of the Academy Awards

Lots of Oscar talk since the nominations were announced last week. Here's a bit of history about the awards.

I have not watched the awards for a few years now. It has lost something for me. The last time I did watch it, I had taped it & I just fast forwarded through most of it.

I always tape it. I don't watch all or even most of it (I'm not really into the speeches), but I like to catch the clips and the performances. Of course, these days there's so much hype and so much material available beforehand that a lot of the mystery is gone before the awards actually take place.
