Robert Osborne on 85 Years of the Academy Awards

Monday, February 17, 2014

Robert Osborne, host of Turner Classic Movies, was here in November to talk about the history of the Academy Awards. We're re-airing it today. Osbourne's newly revised book 85 Years of the Oscar: The Official History of the Academy Awards, is about the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences and the birth of the Oscars, and presents the story of each year's awards, beginning with the very first.
