Hollywood’s biggest night is fast approaching and as important as it is to know who or what will take home an Oscar, the real news of the night seems to always hinge on the after party. After all, many a great story or revelation has come when the broadcast cuts off and the winners and nominees let loose. But who can remember everything or anything that’s happened since 1929?

It’s been more than a decade since Graydon Carter and David Friend published “Oscar Night: 75 Years of Hollywood Parties” but the book remains a classic Academy Awards companion piece today. “Oscar Night” is a walk down memory lane of the first 75 years of the Academy Awards’ after parties. A compendium of candids of your favorite celebrities and events past and present – ranging from the black-tie dinners of the early years to the first Vanity Fair gala in 2004 – “Oscar Night” beautifully chronicles nearly every generation of Hollywood in color and black-and-white.

Filled with over 500 personal and archival photographs – some of which have never been seen before – “Oscar Night” offers a rare glimpse into rarified air. If you’re throwing your own viewing party, it wouldn’t be a terrible idea to have this hardcover coffee table book on display for your guests to peruse.
