Audience Reviews for Tcm Presents And The Oscar (R) Goes To...
"And the Oscar Goes To..." is a celebration of Hollywood, the film industry, and the biggest night of the year. This documentary gathers the perspectives of Hollywood's greatest stars to tell the history of the Oscars, show what happens backstage, and educate us on the different categories. The film is worth watching for the unprecedented amount of classic movie clips and the greatest acceptance speeches, but there is a lot more at the heart of it. It sheds light on a lot of things that we never think about, like the blacklisting of many actors and writers during the Cold War. I gained a new perspective when the film pointed out that, each time a person wins an award, there are four more losers bitterly sitting in the audience. I also never considered how devastating it must be for the films that receive a lot of nominations and then watch another film sweep the entire ceremony. Just imagine receiving 11 nominations for "The Color Purple" and then sitting in the audience as "Out of Africa" received 7 Oscars and you received none, or receiving 7 nominations for "Seabiscuit" and watching "The Return of the King" receive Oscars in all of its nominated categories while you didn't get a single one. This documentary is the complete package and will either help you better appreciate the Oscars or reaffirm your love of cinema. Steven Spielberg, Jane Fonda, George Clooney, Helen Mirren, Tom Hanks, Cher, and Jennifer Hudson are just a handful of the celebrities that bring Hollywood to life as the film progresses. "And the Oscar Goes To..." is a must for any movie fan and will inspire you to revisit all of your favorite Hollywood classics over and over again.
I was really looking forward to watching this because of my love for the Academy Awards, however, TCM's documentation of the award show's history didn't really stand out in any particular way. I would have liked to see more rare behind the scenes footage and stories rather than straight up facts about who had won in the past. And I definitely would have liked to see less of Cher.
A documentary about the history of the Oscars, but nothing beyond the ordinary. The people interviewed seem random and the whole thing seems kind of thrown together, although I did enjoy a lot of the old footage. (First and only viewing - February 2014)
