The Academy Awards website (Oscars.org) maintains lists of nominees and winners from past awards shows, including the 86th Annual Academy Awards show in which "12 Years a Slave" took home the Oscar for Best Picture in 2014. The nominees standing alongside "12 Years a Slave" included "American Hustle," "Captain Phillips," "Dallas Buyers Club," "Philomena," "The Wolf of Wall Street," "Gravity," "Her" and "Nebraska."
The Academy Awards website includes not just a list of 2014's nominees and winner for Best Picture, but also complete lists of all other awards given and the people and films nominated during that awards season . The gallery also includes images of memorable events from the ceremony.
Oscars.org is home to similar galleries for all other iterations of the Academy Awards since its inception. Users can search back through these archives to see past winners and to get a sense for how the Academy functions and why it chooses the films it does.
Once an Academy Awards show is complete, website moderators and staff compile a new entry and post it on the site. This means that shortly after each celebration, a new page is added to the site to allow film and production enthusiasts a place to look through the roster of winners and nominees.
