  • In 1927, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences (AMPAS) was established by Louis B. Mayer . Mayer commented on the creation of the awards: "I found that the best way to handle [filmmakers] was to hang medals all over them ... If I got them cups and awards, they'd kill them to produce what I wanted. That's why the Academy Award was created". The 1st Academy Awards was the only one that wasn't broadcast live.
