BEVERLY HILLS, CA – The official history of the Academy Awards, 85 Years of the Oscar captures the thrill of the film industry’s most significant and popular event with more than 750 photographs and an informative text by renowned film historian and Hollywood insider Robert Osborne. 

Published by Abbeville Press in association with the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, this extensively researched volume will be available in select bookstores and online retailers starting October 29.

In 85 Years of the Oscar, Osborne traces the history of the Awards from the formative years of the film industry to the present, illustrating how the Oscars® have been influenced by world events and how each year’s ceremony – and the movies honored that year – are a reflection of their time.

The ceremonies are detailed, decade by decade, with a complete listing of the nominees and winners in every category and a special section of Academy Award® record holders. 

85 Years of the Oscar includes such recent updates as plans for the Academy Museum of Motion Pictures, the establishment of the Governors Awards ceremony, the expansion of the Best Picture category, and the introduction of electronic voting for the Awards.

Osborne’s Oscar coverage of unique authority and depth has made the book a favorite since the first edition was published 25 years ago.
