The Ultimate, Unofficial Guide to the Oscar Awards, Golden Globe Awards, Critics & Guild Honors
by Tom O’Neil ’77
A former editor of The Observer, O’Neil appears regularly on the E! Entertainment network. His book has been called a “feast for the trivia junkie,” but there’s more than trivia here.
As the Directors Guild of America magazine noted: “Not only does O’Neil list the awards chronologically, from 1927 to 1999, but he also introduces each year with behind-the-scenes, blow-by-blow info culled from the archives of Variety, New York Times and a number of other sources . . . . While it’s undeniably a fantastic reference, it’s also a pretty darn good and frequently amusing read.”
