Oscar since the beginning

Here are nominees and winners in six top Oscar categories going back to the first awards ceremony in 1928. In the early years, nominations were not made public, so the nominees listed come from Academy records of award deliberations. Ties were allowed in the early years, and until 1934 the period from which films were eligible did not match the calendar year. Nominations for best supporting actors and actresses began in 1936.
