The glamour, the excitement, the triumphs, the upsets, the tacky gowns--the Academy Awards: who can remember it all? Whether you're a film fan, award aficionado, or just a pop culture buff, her is, by category, the most comprehensive Academy Award trivia challenge ever to be compiled.

A trivia book with attitude, The Envelope, Please is divided into chapters on the various aspects, honors, nominations and telecasts of the Academy Awards. From statistical facts to memorable, and often embarrassing moments (paging Rob Lowe and Snow White!), from the record-holding winners to all-time big losers in a variety of categories, you can test your knowledge of Hollywood's night of nights. There are Tinseltown teasing questions about the Academy's inner workings, noteworthy achievements, heart-breaking omissions, unforgettable ovations, and much more--from high drama to high kitsch.
