About the Awards

History of the Academy Awards

The Oscars have come a long way since the first ceremony at a private hotel banquet in 1929 when just 270 people attended, guests had to pay $5 and the winners were known ahead of time.


Oscar Statuette

Over 2,700 gold-plated statuettes have been handed out since MGM art director Cedric Gibbons designed what is now arguably the most recognized trophy in the world.
