Written by the only journalist ever given carte blanche access to the Oscars(, this unprecedented look at the the high times and dirty dealings backstage at the annual Academy Awards( offers an unguarded, behind-the-scenes glimpse of this singular event.
An " entertaining, fly-on-the-wall" * look at everyone' s favorite Hollywood circus and what it reveals about the business of moviemaking
Love it or loathe it, the Oscars are an irresistible spectacle: a gloriously gaudy, glitzy, momentous, and foolish window into the unholy alliance of art and commerce that is the film industry. "The Big Show" is the only book ever to offer an unguarded, behind-the-scenes glimpse of this singular event, along with remarkable insight into how the Oscars reflect the high-stakes politics of Hollywood, our obsession with celebrities (not to mention celebrities' obsession with themselves), and the cinematic state of the union.
