The Archive has copies of every Academy Awards show since the 21st, which took place in 1949. Beginning in 1990, the collection grew to contain not only copies of each awards ceremony but a myriad of related events including: press kits, nomination announcements, the nominees luncheons, press coverage, the Governors Awards, Scientific and Technical Awards, backstage interviews, the Governors Ball, and more. The thousands of elements in this collection range from 16mm film prints and kinescopes, to various video formats and digital files.
