The live streaming of Oscars 2023 is going to happen on Sunday i.e. March 12, 2023. The first Oscars ceremony was held at the Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel on May 16, 1929, in what we consider to be award show season in modern times. Only 15 awards were given in the first Oscar ceremony. At the same time, there have been many changes in its journey of Oscar since 1929. Let us know what are those main changes.
According to media reports, the names of the first Oscar Award winners were originally published and announced in the daily newspaper. It seemed simple enough until a paper accidentally published the results too early. From then on, the awards were broadcast live on radio until 1953, when the Academy Awards made their television debut on NBC.
Fashion changes with time and trends come and go. At the same time, with time, the general theme and dress code have also changed. There is a huge difference in the outfits of the stars on the red carpet now. In the early days, these dresses were not so eye-catching and fashionable.
According to a media report, in the year 2010, Oscar winners were given a time limit of 45 seconds for a winning speech. Although before this the winners used to keep their winning speech very long. In 1942, Best Actress winner Greer Garson gave a speech of over 5 minutes.
It took a long time to nail down a host who would take over as host of the awards ceremony. According to media reports, in 1994, Whoopi Goldberg became both the first woman and the first African-American to host the show on her own.
Celebrity chef Wolfgang Puck has served the Governor’s Ball after-party for more than 20 years, but the menu looked very different before his tenure. According to Bon Appétit, dinner was served to guests during the official awards at the first Oscars and consisted of simple items like string beans and broiled chicken. Now, Wolfgang Puck usually caters to the after-party and no food is served during the ceremony. The Governors Ball menu is very, very long, elaborately themed, and delicious.
According to information, only 270 people were in attendance at the first Oscar ceremony. Since then, attendance has grown enormously in size. The Dolby Theater now seats more than 3,000 people. There are seat-fillers to fill the space, all of which have to follow strict rules.
It is known that for many years the Oscars kept a cap of only five films in the Best Picture category. About a decade ago the show increased this limit to 10 films so that more films could hope for bigger nominations.
