The Oscar for Best Picture in 1933 went to the epic production of Cavalcade. A popular film based on a popular stageplay, which would soon become a tradition for numerous other Best Picture winners, too. But the question still remains.. does it hold up today?
The year is 1932 and the Best Picture winner is... Grand Hotel! This is the first and only movie to win the top honor without being nominated in a single other category. Tune in to hear our take on this star-studded, Hollywood production!
The third year of the Academy Awards and already a second war movie wins the top honor! Arguably one of the greatest anti-war films of all time, All Quiet On The Western Front becomes the standard for all war epics to follow.
And the winner is... The Broadway Melody! The first official movie musical to win the top prize happened in only the second year of the Academy Awards. Tune in to see how much has already changed between the first two Oscar ceremonies.
