Review Hub - Academy Awards


While sometimes controversial, the Academy Awards (aka the Oscars) are still the most prestigious film awards on the planet. First presented in 1929 at a dinner at the Roosevelt Hotel, the Award continues to be the subject of debate and criticism, even after it is handed out.
