1930s Academy Award Winners

The 1930s film industry saw an increase in full-length films, the use of technicolor, monsters, sequals, spin-offs, and remakes. The studio system was also at an all-time high with control and made most of the creative decisions.

During the period of the Great Depression, films were seen as a way to keep people's away from their troubles. This allowed the film industry to boom, causing the decade to produce many great memorable movies.

In case you are wondering, the reason why 1929-1930, 1930-1930, 1930-1931, and 1931-1932 are clumped together, it is because the Academy used a non-calendar year. This decade also called the award "Outstanding Production" instead of "Best Picture".
