In the most recent years, the Oscars have been criticised for lack of diversity and turning a blind eye to sexual harassment allegations within the industry. If you want to find out more about these criticisms and social movements or want to know more about the Oscars in general, in this blog post I share with you some of the resources that are available about them in media and online.
Earlier this week we gave you an overview of the different film resources accessible for free through the Library. We mostly focused on the big Best Picture winners, so we wanted to come back and give some love to the less high profile award categories.
The 91st Academy Awards are just round the corner but you’ll need to stay up late in to the wee small hours to watch it as the ceremony begins at 1:00 am on the 25th February. What better way to get into the Oscar’s spirit then checking out some great film resources that you can access for free with your Library account? So turn the lights down low, grab your favourite movie snacks and get comfy. Here’s some of what we have available.
