The Academy Awards: The Good, the Bad, and the Outrageous

Just how did this Hollywood award get started? Who has won (or lost) the Oscar over the years? What classics were never even nominated? What forgotten films are former Best Picture winners? What are some of the televised ceremony’s most famous (and infamous) moments? Who will win this year – and who will go home empty-handed? Join film speaker Frank Mandosa as he answers these questions and more to get you ready for Hollywood's big night! There will be interactive trivia questions, clips, poster board displays, movie-themed door prizes, and free blank Oscar ballots!
