Publisher's Summary

A fascinating history of motion pictures through the lens of the Academy Awards, the Best Picture winners and the box-office contenders.

In Best Pick: A Journey Through Film History and the Academy Awards, John Dorney, Jessica Regan and Tom Salinsky provide a captivating decade-by-decade exploration of the Oscars. For each decade, they examine the making of classic films, trends and innovations in cinema, behind-the-scenes scandals at the awards ceremony and who won and why. Twenty films are reviewed in-depth, alongside 10 detailed 'making-of' accounts and capsule reviews of every single Best Picture winner in history. In addition, each Best Picture winner is carefully scrutinised to answer the ultimate question: 'did the Academy get it right?'

Full of wonderful stories, cogent analysis and fascinating insights, Best Pick is a witty and enthralling look at the people, politics, movies and trends that have shaped our cinematic world.
