Movies About Fatherhood
The Academy Awards, popularly known as the Oscars, are presented annually by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences (AMPAS) to recognize excellence of professionals in the film industry, including directors, actors, and writers. The formal ceremony at which the awards are presented is one of the most prominent film award ceremonies in the world. The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences itself was conceived by Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer studio boss Louis B. Mayer.
The 1st Academy Awards ceremony was held on Thursday, May 16, 1929, at the Hotel Roosevelt in Hollywood to honor outstanding film achievements of 1927 and 1928. It was hosted by actor Douglas Fairbanks and director William C. deMille.

Tell us what you think....
I agree. And I liked the show being more about what they were judging(for the viewer's sake), than the winner's themselves. A special touch utilized this year, that I enjoyed, was when introducing each nominee in a category, a previous winner of that category stood on stage and recited what they thought of the nominee in their role, ie: Sophia Loren spoke to and about Meryl Streep.
My wife missed not watching it. I just am starting to feel overly inundated by celebrity fanfare. Something about not congratulating them too much felt nice.
It actually was more entertaining than usual. Like him or not, Hugh Jackman made the difference, in my opinion(which has a little more clout today).
Did anyone actually watch the Academy Awards this year? (I just feel like it's too boring to have to sit through.)
