AcademyAwards04(EDITOR’S NOTE: Due to an error in the publishing system, this post was supposed to go live on Friday morning, but did not. We will publish the full ranking of the Best of the Best Picture Oscar Winners poll with 12 Years a Slave included tomorrow morning, Tuesday, March 4, 2014)
This year marks the 86th anniversary of the Academy Awards, an annual celebration of the best in motion pictures selected by more than 6,000 members of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences. Conceived by legendary studio magnate Louis B. Mayer as a mediator for labor disputes, the Academy started with a modest membership of 36 and has since become one of the most important organizations with one of the most prestigious and sought-after prizes anywhere in the world.

An Academy Award can mean a better career. It can lead to more lucrative offers. It can add millions to a film’s box office. There is no other film award that can compare in terms of its global importance and familiarity.

A Terrifying Peek Inside the Empty Brain of a Typical Oscar Voter

Jason Bailey @ Flavorwire

  • Excerpt: For all the hip, beautiful people on the stage and in the audience on Oscar night, the awards themselves are bestowed by a giant body that is filled to the brim with mouth-breathing troglodytes. And if you’d like a fresher confirmation of that fact, I direct you to this interview with an anonymous Oscar voter, courtesy of the great Michael Musto.
