Riassunto: Who Should Have Won the Oscars?

If you've ever wondered why the Oscars seem to go to the wrong movies, WHO Won?!? is the book for you. Beginning with the first Oscar ceremony, Robert James looks at all the major categories, slashing and burning his way through the bad, praising the good, and offering the best for your consideration. A comic, biting analysis of hundreds of films, WHO Won?!? is a guide to the wonderful movies you missed - and a warning against the ones you should never have seen in the first place. Volume One, 1927-1943 covers the Golden Age of Hollywood, from the death of the silent picture to the heights of studio Hollywood. Year by year, the author considers and discusses the Academy's choices, as well as those which should have been nominated, finishing each category with those which should have won. He often includes some of the history behind the making of the films, as well as how the movies reflect on America. More than just an examination of the choices the Academy made (or should have made), WHO Won?!? provides a yearbook of American cinema, both glorious and disastrous. Deftly switching from the ridiculous to the sublime and back again, WHO Won?!? will leave you both laughing and thinking.

Dall'autore: For those of you who buy the book, especially the Kindle, PLEASE read the footnotes marked by Arabic numerals! That's where most of the comic asides and tirades are (1,2,3,etc.).

The Roman numeral endnotes are the bibliographical information -- you can ignore those unless you want to know where the information comes from (i, ii, iii, iv, etc.).

Volume 4:1964-1977 is (tentatively) scheduled for Christmas, 2016.
