The date is set. The nominations are in. The competition is steep. The season of the Oscar is upon us, and we’re celebrating by giving away five copies of Bruce Davis’s The Academy and the Award: The Coming of Age of Oscar and the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences. If you adore awards season as much as we do, you’ll love this behind the scenes look at the scrappy and scandalous adolescence that made the Academy the venerable
institution it is today.

For a chance to win, follow us on Instagram, share this post, and tag us @brandeispress. We’ll select the winners on Friday, February 2nd. This year, the [Academy and the] Award just might go to you!
