Robert Osborne's book has everything you ever wanted to know about the Oscars: a general history of the Academy, a year-by-year portrayal of the actual ceremonies, plus a complete listing of the nominees and winners in every category. In addition to Osborne's text, there are personal remembrances of more than 100 Oscar winners, including Mickey Rooney, Mary Astor, Sir Laurence Olivier, Fred Zinnemann, Clint Eastwood, and Emma Thompson.
