    One thought on “Oscar® Fever: The History and Politics of the Academy Awards®”

    1. Surprisingly high amount of typos and just silly mistakes (The Apartment was NOT the last black-and-white film to win Best Picture. Heard of Schindler's List? And the author is from Israel, for cryin' out loud.) and there isn't a particularly high level of analysis here. But it's still a fun, informative book for the most part.
