Without preamble, this text opens with the awards of 1927-28 (presumably the first awarded by the Academy) and continues through 2002. A section on fashion (women's) is included for each decade. With its year-to-year format and presentation of each award in its own inset box on the page, this is more an encyclopedia than a narrative history. Movie buffs will enjoy the stills and the short synopsis of each award as it was received by its grateful star or director, and the summary of nominations included for each year.
