I was not aware of this new TCM documentary until I read Pete Hammond’s great article today. Should be an excellent program Saturday night.
A new TCM documentary airing this Saturday chronicles the Academy Awards ceremony for the past 86 years. Pete Hammond
says it is “the most thorough and detailed look at the Oscars” ever
done before, especially since had support from the Academy. “And the
Oscar Goes To…” will includes lots of rare footage from on stage and
behind the scenes. Board members past and present who are interviewed
include Annette Bening, Tom Hanks, Kathleen Kennedy, Michael Moore, Phil Alden Robinson, Craig Barron, Jeffrey Kurland, Bruce Davis, and Cheryl Boone Isaacs. Past winners on the program are Ellen Burstyn, Cher, George Clooney, Jane Fonda, Whoopi Goldberg, Helen Mirren, and Jon Voight. Deadline.
I’m aware of it since the Academy announced it, in September, and I’m willing to see it. TCM Spain will air it the same night of the Oscars, March 2. It has to be in every Oscar addict’s collection 😉
