The 1st Academy Awards ceremony, presented by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences (AMPAS), honored the best films of 1927 and 1928 and took place on May 16, 1929, at a private dinner held at the Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel in Los Angeles, California. AMPAS president Douglas Fairbanks hosted the show. Tickets cost $5 (which would be $69 in 2016 considering inflation), 270 people attended the event and the presentation ceremony lasted fifteen minutes. Awards were created by Louis B. Mayer, founder of Louis B. Mayer Pictures Corporation (at present merged into Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer). It is the only Academy Awards ceremony not to be broadcast either on radio or television.

 

 

Major winners at the ceremony included 7th Heaven and Sunrise, which each received three awards, and Wings, receiving two awards. Among its honors, Sunrise won the award for Unique and Artistic Picture and Wings won the award for Outstanding Picture (now known as Best Picture). These two categories at the time were seen as equally the top award of the night intended to honor different and equally important aspects of superior film making. The next year, the Academy dropped the Unique and Artistic Picture award, and decided retroactively that the award won by Wings was the highest honor that could be awarded...

I demand, not so much
I desire, not so much
I've seen, not so much
I will see, not so much..

I think, not so much
I mean, not so much
I heard, not so much
I can do, not so much..

Freedom - I love and understand
Freedom - I'm not able to give away..

I had, not so much
I have, not so much
I can lose it all
I can stay alone..

Freedom - I love and understand..

There's a mountain and it's mighty high
You cannot see the top, unless you fly
There's a molehill, of proven ground
There ain't nowhere to go if you hang around..

Everybody wants to sell what's already been sold
Everybody wants to tell what's already been told
What's the use of money
If you ain't gonna break the mold
Even at the center of the fire, there is cold
And all that glitters ain't gold
And all that glitters ain't gold..

There's an ocean, of despair
There are people livin' there
They're unhappy, each and every day
Hell is not fashion, so whatcha tryin' to say?

There's a lady, ninety nine-years-old
If she led a good life, heaven takes her soul
That's a theory and if you don't want to know
Step aside and make a way for those who want to go...

 

 

Could you be the most beautiful girl in the world?
It's plain to see you're the reason that God made a girl
When the day turns into the last day of all time
I can say I hope you are in these arms of mine
And when the night falls before that day I will cry
I will cry tears of joy 'cause after you all one can do is die, oh..

Could you be the most beautiful girl in the world?
Could you be?
It's plain to see you're the reason that God made a girl
Oh, yes you are..

How can I get through days when I can't get through hours?
I can try but when I do I see you and I'm devoured, oh yes
Who'd allow, who'd allow a face to be soft as a flower? Oh
I could bow (bow down) and feel proud in the light of this power
Oh yes, oh..

Could you be (could you be) the most beautiful girl in the world?
Could you be?
It's plain to see you're the reason that God made a girl
Oh, yes you are..

And if the stars ever fell one by one from the sky
I know Mars could not be, uh, to far behind
'Cause baby, this kind of beauty has got no reason to ever be shy
'Cause honey, this kind of beauty is the kind that comes from inside..

Could you be (could you be) the most beautiful girl in the world?
So beautiful, beautiful
It's plain to see (plain to see) you're the reason that God made a girl..

Oh yeah! (Oh, yes you are)
Girl (Could you be?)
You must be, oh yeah!
(Could you be?)
You're the reason, oh yeah
(Could) [Repeat: x3]...
