“[picking up an Oscar] This little guy has become the most visible trophy the world has ever known. He is also the most talked about. And for the people in my business, the most coveted.” – Karl Malden
Number of Times Seen – At least 5 times (Video in the 90’s, 17 Jun 2001 and 9 Dec 2020)
Brief Synopsis – Documentary about some of the best moments in Oscar History between 1971 and 1991.
Bottom Line – Amazing documentary that is so enjoyable to watch as an Oscarphile. They really do a wonderful job focuses on some of the best surprises in the show over these two decades. We get a eclectic look at all of these years while focusing n various aspects of the show. As someone who has watched the Oscar show live every year over the past 33 years (sometimes numerous times), my biggest issue about the film is that it just isn’t long enough because I can watch hours upon hours of Oscar footage without getting bored. Highly Highly Recommended!
MovieRob’s Favorite Trivia – In 1974, a man named Robert Opel notoriously streaked across the stage, in full view of hundreds of millions of TV viewers, just as co-host David Niven was about to introduce the Best Picture category, thus becoming probably the most famous example of the 1970s’ streaking craze. (From IMDB)
Rating – Oscar Worthy (10/10)
