Book Synopsis

An exclusive look behind the scenes of the Academy Awards as top stars and filmmakers discuss their Oscar wins and share never-before-told tales of Hollywood's biggest night. This collection features original interviews with Dave Karger, host of Turner Classic Movies and entertainment media journalist.
For almost a century, movie fans have been captivated by the Academy Awards and the stars who have won Oscars. 50 Oscar Nights takes readers behind the scenes of Hollywood's most storied awards show through new and exclusive interviews with dozens of A-list actors, filmmakers, and craftspeople spanning sixty years of the Oscars. In these interviews, the artists reflect on their winning work and recount all the details of how they prepared, how they felt when they heard their name called and went up on stage to accept their award, what they wore, how the entire experience impacted their life, and more.
Some interviews reveal fun stories, like why Hilary Swank decided to celebrate her Academy Award at Astro Burger in West Hollywood, or provide insight into the work, as Elton John explains why he was convinced he won his Best Original Song award for the wrong tune. Other interviews shed light on why, for some honorees such as Julia Roberts, John Legend, and Octavia Spencer, the day remains a life highlight to be treasured, while for Marlee Matlin, Mira Sorvino, and Barry Jenkins, complex emotions cloud what most would think would be a purely celebratory moment.
Filled with over 150 photos of red-carpet moments, emotional acceptance speeches, and after-party festivities, 50 Oscar Nights is both a stunning record of cinema glamour and a must-read for any movie lover.
