    A run through of the academy award nominees and winners from 1982 to 1986. The changing roles of men and women in society and political turmoil was directly reflected on screen through films like Tootsie and Platoon.

    A run through of the academy award nominees and winners from 1987 to 1991. These years were filled with overdue recognition and undeserved snubs. Influential films like Do the Right thing was overlooked for best picture, and Barbara Streisand is excluded from the all male best director lineup.

    A run through of the academy award nominees and winners from 1992 to 1996. Women took on more central roles in films, and independent filmmakers started rivaling the big studios. Directors like Quentin Tarantino and the Cohen Brothers made a huge splash with films such as Pulp Fiction and Fargo. Schindler's List and Forrest Gump, both were highly revered and took home many awards.

    A run through of the academy award nominees and winners from 1997 to 2002. These were the years the rivalry between Steven Spielberg from Dreamworks and Harvey Weinstein from Miramax burned as they competed to win best picture with their respective films year after year. Titanic broke all box office records when it was released and won eleven oscars.

Eh, Not Bad...
I thought this would have the acceptance speeches and lots of footage from the Oscar show, but almost none. It talks about the nominees and gives an overview of the year in question, but there's something a little sad about going back to those days. I didn't get past the second installment. Were the 70s really that dreary? I seem to remember they were.
