TCM Announces 'Oscar,' New Documentary on History of the Academy Awards, to Premiere in February 2014

As part of TCM’s annual “31 Days of Oscar” showcase in February of 2014, the network will present the world premiere of brand-new documentary “Oscar,” which traces the history of the Academy Awards.

The special is co-directed and penned by filmmakers Rob Epstein and Jeffrey Friedman (“Common Threads: Stories
from the Quilt”). It features extensive clips from Oscar-winning and
nominated films, plus behind-the-scenes ceremony footage from the archives of
Hollywood Newsreel. Much of this has never been shown before. 

The doc’s high-profile interviewees include, among many others, George Clooney, Annette Benning, Tom
Hanks, Ben Kingsley, Helen Mirren, Whoopi Goldberg, Steven Spielberg, Michael
Moore and frequent Oscar host Billy Crystal.

“Oscar” is set to air on February 1, the opening night of “31 Days of Oscar.” Each night’s lineup will feature a
complete set of nominated films that faced each other in a particular category.

The February 1 programming includes, asides from the
premiere of the new doc, all 10 Best Picture nominees from 1939: “Gone with the
Wind,” “The Wizard of Oz,” “Goodbye Mr. Chips,” “Of Mice and Men,” “Ninotchka,”
“Wuthering Heights,” “Stagecoach,” “Mr. Smith Goes to Washington,” “Dark
Victory” and “Love Affair.”
