Produced by Telling Pictures, Inc., in association with the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences (The Academy) and Hollywood Newsreel, this fascinating special takes movie lovers on a journey through Hollywood history as it tells its story of the little statuette that became the industry’s most coveted prize.

Christopher Pavlick and Rick Spalla are also producing.

To bring its story to life, And the Oscar® Goes To… is packed with great moments from 85 years of Academy Award ceremonies, which were first held at the Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel, now home to the TCM Classic Film Festival each spring. The special also features extensive clips from Oscar-winning and nominated films, plus exclusive, behind-the-scenes ceremony footage from the archives of Hollywood Newsreel, much of it never shown before.

Several Academy Award-winning and nominated actors and actresses are featured in And the Oscar® Goes To…, including Annette Bening (American Beauty), Ellen Burstyn (Alice Doesn’t Live Here Anymore), Cher (Moonstruck), George Clooney (Syriana), Benicio Del Toro (Traffic), Jane Fonda (Klute, Coming Home), Whoopi Goldberg (Ghost), Tom Hanks (Philadelphia, Forrest Gump), Jennifer Hudson (Dreamgirls), Sir Ben Kingsley (Gandhi) and Dame Helen Mirren (The Queen).

The interview roster also includes such Oscar winners and nominees as cinematographer Janusz Kaminski (Schindler’s List, Saving Private Ryan); film editor Kirk Baxter (The Social Network, The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo); production designer Jeannine Claudia Oppewall (L.A. Confidential); costume designer Jeffrey Kurland (Bullets Over Broadway); make-up artist Ve Neil (Beetlejuice, Mrs. Doubtfire, Ed Wood); visual effects supervisor Craig Barron (The Curious Case of Benjamin Button); and sound designer Ben Burtt (Star Wars, E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial).

In addition, And the Oscar® Goes To… features interviews with frequent Academy Award ceremony host Billy Crystal (When Harry Met Sally…), head writer Bruce Vilanche, ceremony producer Don Mischer, former Academy executive director Bruce Davis and cinematographer and Board of Governors member John Bailey (As Good as It Gets). The special also includes a chat with TCM host, author and Academy Awards historian Robert Osborne, whose book 85 Years of the Oscar: The Official History of the Academy Awards was recently released by Abbeville Press.

And the Oscar® Goes To… not only tells the history of the Academy Awards, but also highlights the relationship between the honored movies and major historical events and trends. Woven throughout the narrative are segments about the major categories, including Best Actor, Best Actress, Best Director and Best Picture, as well as sidebars about the annual parade of fashions on the red carpet, memorable host monologues and emotion-packed tributes.

CNN Films will air the encore presentation of And the Oscar® Goes To… on CNN following the film’s premiere on TCM.
