On The Web Since 1995!
do I love the Academy Awards so much? It's simple ...
because I love movies so much. The Academy Awards are
the only awards show that are solely devoted to honoring the entire
craft of filmmaking. It's the one major night each year when
the majority of the film community is gathered together to celebrate
excellence in one of the greatest art forms there is.
It's the rare evening when aspiring and struggling short film
makers, unsung film editors, visual effects artists, and the biggest
stars in the world can all share the same stage for a few
hours. Are the Academy Awards perfect? Of course
not. Have they made some terrible choices?
Of course they have. But regardless of their choices, the
Academy Award remains the pinnacle of achievement for anyone making
movies, and has also marked the history of film, all the way from
1927 when talking pictures were making their debut, and they
continue to this day to celebrate and honor the craft of
filmmaking. Just like motion pictures, the Oscars mark moments
in time. Just as certain films can bring back memories
of the people we saw the films with, and what was going on in our
lives at the time we experienced them, the Academy Awards also mark
moments in time, based on the events in the world at the time, the
popular and respected stars and directors of their times, and
this web site, we not only offer Oscar history information for those
needing it, but we also want to make this a fun, interactive
experience as well. Share your opinions with the world
on everything from your favorite films of all time, your picks if we
could vote for who should receive the next Honorary Academy Awards,
your opinions on the worst Oscar snubs of all time, and even our own
annual contest, The OscarWorld Open, where you can uniquely predict
who you think will win each year's Academy Awards. This
website has been around for many years, almost since the beginning
of the popularity of the internet, and has changed many times over
the years ... we hope you enjoy your visit and e-mail me at anytime
