Oscar Night is Almost Here.

We're just eleven days away from Oscar Night. This is its 83rd year! We decided to look back at some of the winners of the past. In our Attic we have dozens of programs that were printed for The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences. The event these were printed for was the Academy's movie screening series titled, "Facets of the Diamond: 75 Years of Best Picture Winners", shown at the Samuel Goldwyn Theater. This very cool series began showing in May 2002, starting with the very first Oscar winner, Wings from 1927-28. Then in chronological order, a different Oscar winning movie was screened each Monday night, following up to the 75th Academy Awards held on March 23, 2003. Here are a few of those programs from our archives.

The Apartment. 1960 Best Picture Winner.

Tome Jones. 1963 Best Picture Winner.

A Man For All Seasons. 1966 Best Picture Winner.

The Sting. 1973 Best Picture Winner.

Amadeus. 1984 Best Picture Winner.

The Last Emperor. 1987 Best Picture Winner.

The Silence of the Lambs. 1991 Best Picture Winner.

American Beauty. 1999 Best Picture Winner.

This is what the other side of each program looks like. Each is printed with some really interesting descriptions and details about that Oscar winning movie.

American Beauty. Back-side.
