The movies, the history... The Oscars has seen a lot since 1929 and rummaging through its history yields many treasures.
The film industry has been around for more than 100 years now and the Oscars almost as long. We've seen silent films give way to talkies and black and white to color. We've seen the rises and falls of huge studios and small. And we've borne witness to the expansion of Hollywood as the virtual boutique industry exploded in the '70s with the advent of blockbuster filmmaking (thanks, George Lucas and Steven Spielberg).
But, through it all, Oscar has remained. Every year on one glorious night, every big name in the film industry gathers together in Hollywood to pay tribute to the year's best. The celebration has seen its share of historical moments, hilarious moments, and embarrassing gaffes. Here's a look at some of the most memorable moments and facts about the Oscars you may not know about.
