Steve Pond's book

"The Big Show - High Times and Dirty Dealings Backstage of the Academy Awards"
covers ten years of Academy Awards, from the mid 1990s until the ceremony in 2004.
The book opens with the Rob Lowe/Snow White fiasco and how each year a new producer attempts to "improve" the ceremony.

Author Steve Pond finds the goats that one would expect from the Hollywood royalty. The one consistent hero that shines is Steve Martin. http://www.stevemartin.com/. The wild and crazy guy is revealed to be a low maintenance professional who always rises to the occasion.

Steve Pond's "The Big Show - High Times and Dirty Dealings Backstage of the Academy Awards" is a fun read for Oscar mavens.
