Oscar is getting ready to celebrate a milestone birthday: Its 95th!
The upcoming 95th Oscars will mark nearly a century of cinematic excellence, with a ceremony that Academy CEO Bill Kramer told A.frame will honor both the year's best films and this historic anniversary. "The energy around the show should feel like a massive celebration of cinema and the awards — our legacy, our artists, our movies, our future," he said. "The 95th gives us a great opportunity to knit together the incredible legacy of the Oscars, the diverse and powerful work we do across the Academy, and our vision for the future," explained Kramer.
As we look forward to the 95th Oscars, A.frame is here to keep you in the know about the who, what, when and where of the show.
