Film nerds can get all their Oscar-related facts from a series of databases supplied by the Margaret Herrick Library, the research library of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences.
Among the library’s many goodies are:
- the Academy Awards Database which contains the record of past Academy Award winners and nominees
- the Academy Awards Acceptance Speech Database with more than 1,400 transcripts of onstage acceptance speeches
- the Digital Collections with more than 5000 items, including correspondence, photographs, early release fliers, full issues of rare periodicals, sheet music, lobby cards and movie star ephemera
