1980s Academy Award Winners

The 1980s are remembered for their increase in film nudity and corny music. However, the 80s also helped bring in a new era of film making. Sci-fi, horror, and action genres were seeing more interest than every before. As well, movies began being created specifically for teens which forced the MPAA to bring in a new rating: PG-13 in 1984.
