The American Film Academy has been presenting awards since 1929. Since then, over 450 films have been nominated for a major world award. The BeautyHack editors share a list of musicals, dramas and romantic films about beauty that have received the famous statuette (and not even one).

Broadway melody

Broadway Melody is practically the same age as the Oscars. The musical received an award in 1930. Perhaps now the film will seem out of date and naive to you, but this is a real Hollywood classic with charming characters, ironic aftertaste and musical numbers. The leading roles in the musical were played by silent film stars Anita Page and Bessie Love. Watch for fun dancing, love affair, and 1920s-themed makeup.

gone With the Wind

Besides the fact that Gone with the Wind is a film about love of all time, it is also the first full-length color film. This circumstance alone predetermined the success of the project and made it one of the highest-grossing in the history of American cinema - in the USA, the story of Scarlett O'Hara and Rhett Butler raised $ 200 million (an impressive amount for 1939).

But the film academy gave the official appraisal of the film, giving it eight Oscars, one of which was nominated for Best Film. Vivien Leigh was selected for the role of Scarlett O'Hara from 1,400 applicants, and along with Clark Gable, Ronald Colman, Gary Cooper, Fredrick March, Basil Rathbone and Errol Flynn were nominated for the role of Rhett Butler.

Casablanca

The romantic story of Rick Blaine and Ilsa Lund, played by the then famous Humphrey Bogard and Ingrid Bergman, unfolds against the backdrop of the events of World War II in Moroccan Casablanca.

The film, conceived by the producers of Warner Brothers as a "walk-through", has become one of the most memorable in the history of American cinema, and the famous film resource IMDb included it in the top 30 films of all time.

The drama won three Oscars in 1944: Best Film, Best Director and Adapted Screenplay (based on the play). And we will celebrate the work of costume designers and make-up artists, which in the future inspired the creators of the movie "Allies" All images of Marion Cotillard in the spirit of the 40s are designed in the style of "Casablanca"!

Annie Hall

At the 50th Academy Awards in 1978, Woody Allen's work was nominated in five categories. As a result, the film crew received four awards: Best Picture, Best Actress, Best Director and Best Original Screenplay. For Diane Keaton, who played Annie Hall, this picture became a turning point and brought her immense popularity.

By the way, Woody Allen's script was written specifically for Diane, and the unique style of her character is the result of her own work.

brave Heart

"Braveheart" is Mel Gibson's second directorial work for which he won an Oscar in 1996. The historical drama tells the story of the Scottish hero William Wallace (played by Mel Gibson himself).

In the 90s, the picture made a splash with camera work, battle scenes and sound effects. A separate award was presented by the Film Academy to the make-up artists of the project - they own the legendary images of William and Princess Isabella, played by Sophie Marceau.

Titanic

The disaster that took place in the Atlantic Ocean (and during the filming unfolding in a huge pool), linked Kate Winslet and Leonardo DiCaprio for many years, strengthened the success of Katie Bates and made Billy Zane famous. Not to mention the appearance of the single "My Heart Will Go On", performed by Celine Dion.

By the way, Gwyneth Paltrow and Matthew McConaughey applied for the role of Kate and Leo. But the final decision was made by the director James Cameron himself, and he was right - in 1998 the film received ten Oscars!

Shakespeare in love

The failure with "Titanic" hardly upset Gwyneth Paltrow, because a year later she received her first (and so far only) "Oscar" for her role in the film "Shakespeare in Love". The Film Academy appreciated not only the work of the female cast of the film (the second statuette was awarded to Judy Dench for her supporting role), but also the efforts of costume designers, artists, screenwriters and composers - just seven awards out of thirteen nominations!

The film is set in London in the 16th century - at the time when William Shakespeare's main work Romeo and Juliet was created.

American beauty

The film grossed $ 130 million at the American box office alone! American Beauty in 2000 earned Oscars for Kevin Spacey, director Sam Mendes, and a team of cameramen and screenwriters.

Now we do not imagine the other Lester Burnham and Angela Hayes (the image of Nabokov's Lolita was embodied by Mina Suvari), but in fact the cast of the film could be completely different. Tom Hanks, Kirsten Dunst and Jake Gyllenhaal applied for the main roles.

Chicago

In 2003, the musical "Chicago" deservedly received six Oscars, including the best film. At the same time he "bypassed" the paintings "The Clock", "Gangs of New York", "The Lord of the Rings" and "The Pianist".

The script for the musical is based on the play of the same name, the rights to use of which were bought back in the 70s. But it only came to real work in the 90s. Then the best Hollywood actors were attracted to the film: Richard Gere, Catherine Zeta-Jones and Renee Zellweger. Everybody performed dance numbers on their own, and Katherine even won an Oscar for Best Supporting Actress.

Artist

In 2012, the film, shot in the style of silent films, collected a whole bunch of awards around the world. The Film Academy presented the "Artist" with five awards, including the work of the leading actor Jean Dujardin. A little later, the Frenchman received a prize at the Cannes Film Festival and a Golden Globe. And for Berenice Bejo, who was nominated for her supporting role, "The Artist" became the second wind. After the film, she starred in 16 films, including "Eternity" and "Young Godard".
