If it isn’t one thing it is another, controversy seems to swirl around the ceremony. It’s either ‘Oscar so white’, ‘Oscar so right’ or ‘Performers so political’. This is also the time of year when TCM features 31 Days of Oscar movies. This year they are featuring Oscar winning or nominated film from A to Z. Judging by the comments of TCM classic fans about the Oscars on TCM’s FB video advertising 31 Days of Oscar 2017 the fans are definitely not happy with current day Hollywood.
Having just read ‘Natalie Wood: Reflections on a Legendary Life by Manoah Bowman’ (which I highly recommend) and doing research connected with Natalie’s movies I decided to post about the 1964 Oscars that honored films and performances from 1963. We hope our Classic fans enjoy the opening of the 1964 Academy Awards ceremony, Jack Lemmon was the master of ceremony, Rock Hudson did the introduction and the joke of the evening seemed to be about how much money it cost to make the epic film Cleopatra.
