Academy Award Winners: The First 50 Years Full Episode Guide

  • The start of the 1960's sparked a drastic change in the studio system, the studios, and the trajectory of the industry as a whole, prompting production on some of the most envelope-pushing works of all time.

  • In the years following the century's midpoint, Hollywood turned to making decidedly epic films by design, with aims for quintessential greatness resulting in equally epic Academy Awards ceremonies full of impossible choices between innumerable deserving nominees.

  • A new wave of ideas and techniques took hold of the perpetually transforming film industry in the years following the war, with a new generation of fresh and hungry stars finding their own places in the vacuum of reconstruction the industry faced.

  • The postwar years affected Hollywood as much as it did any other American industry during those pivotal transition years as America worked to return to its former normalcy.

  • 1939 was a pivotal year for Hollywood as an industry. As the trajectory of cinema and its grasp expanded and segued from phase to phase, 1939 served a visible barrier year, with the industry being decidedly defined by its statures before and after such a transitional year.

  • With the American film industry expanding and taking an increasingly significant cultural role, the Golden Age of Hollywood was a pivotal period for the films produced during the time, as well as for the lavish award ceremonies that would become a significant staple of Hollywood culture.

  • The first installment in this engrossing series on the history of the first half century in cinematic arts, begins back in 1928, and chronicles the slow transition of the legendary awards ceremony from a discreet and exclusive dinner to an internationally broadcast spectacle full of speeches, performances, and gossip coverage for all niches of film lovers throughout the world.
