“Whether it’s a first date or a holiday gathering with friends or family, movies are a big part of our memory,” Tom Sherak, Academy president, said in a statement. “The Academy Awards not only honor the excellence of these movies, but also celebrate what they mean to us as a culture and to each of us individually.”
