tickets was $5.
Fifteen statuettes were awarded
for their works during the 1927–28 period
the ceremony ran for 15 minutes.
Winners had been announced to media three months earlier; however, that was changed in the second ceremony of the Academy Awards in 1930. Since then and during the first decade, the results were given to newspapers for publication at 11 pm on the night of the awards.
In 1927, AMPAS was established by Louis B. Mayer.
"I found that the best way to handle filmmakers was to hang medals all over them ... If I got them cups and awards they'd kill them to produce what I wanted. That's why the Academy Award was created"
Mayer on the creation of the awards
American action silent film about two World War I fighter pilot friends, both involved with the same beauty
It was the only silent film to win the Academy Award for Best Picture.
Made of gold-plated britannium on a black metal base, it is 34 cm tall, weighs 3.85 kg and illustrated a knight in Art Deco style holding a crusader's sword standing on a reel of film with five spokes. The five spokes represent the original branches of the Academy: Actors, Writers, Directors, Producers, and Technicians.
Cedric Gibbons, one of the original Academy members, supervised the design of the award trophy by printing the design on a scroll. In need of a model for his statuette, Gibbons was introduced by actor Emilio Fernández. He was convinced to pose nude to create what today is known as the "Oscar".
The origin of the name Oscar is disputed.
One of the earliest mentions in print of the term Oscar dates back to a Time magazine article about the 1934.

The Show Must Go On

when massive flooding in Los Angeles delayed the ceremony by a week
The Awards ceremony was postponed from April 8 to April 10 out of respect for Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., who had been assassinated a few days earlier, and whose funeral was held on April 9.
The Awards were once again postponed, this time for 24 hours because of the assassination attempt on President Ronald Reagan.
In 2003, U.S. forces invaded Iraq on the Thursday before the telecast. The show went on as scheduled, but the red carpet was limited to the area immediately in front of the theater entrance, the red carpet bleachers were eliminated and the majority of the world’s press was disinvited.
