TCM And The Oscar Goes To

TCM is airing an Oscar's documentary, And The Oscar Goes To, February 1st to kick off it's 31 Days of Oscar.

I was invited to the premiere last week at The Academy and it really is a great education of the Oscars from the beginning. I wish I could see all the old Oscar telecasts they show parts of. The film has interviews with many nominees and winners including Cher, George Clooney, Whoopie Goldberg, Steven Speilberg, etc..

TCM will further celebrate the Oscar all February and beyond with their 31 days of Oscar I love their new format of airing the nominees in one category for one year. It will be really interesting to see the films of one year all together and get a sense of the zeitgeist of that year.
