Countdown to the Oscars: Bringing the Series Back After Three Years
During the second year of my blog I started a Countdown to the Oscars series for the month of February. I wrote several posts covering the very first Academy Awards ceremony up through 1945. I've linked them below:
Announcing the Countdown to the Oscars
The First Academy Awards, 1927-28
2nd to 6th Academy Awards
1935 - 1938
The War Years, 1940-1945
Throw an Oscars Viewing Party
The following year, 2016, I intended to continue my series. I hosted a Costume Awards for the years before it became an official category but not many people participated. I also participated in a couple of Oscar-themed blogathons:
Timeline of Academy Award-Winning Costumes: 1949-1960
The William Powell Oscar Snubs
Last Year I wrote up a post for the Post-War period but never finished adding photos to it. My only Oscar contributions was a part 2 to my Costume Timeline for the same annual blogathon.
Timeline of Academy Award-Winning Costumes: 1961-1977
This year I am going to try to finish my series. I also hope you'll check out some of my early posts, as I was quite proud of them but didn't have many followers back then.
