In 1949 Bulova began a 4 year contract as the supporter of the televised Academy Awards. To commemorate this relationship the began production of the Academy Award watch. The relationship only lasted 1 year and the Academy sued Bulova and forced them to stop production of the watch using such terms as "Academy Awards", "award winning design".

By 1952 production had ceased.

Many sellers will try and pass of a simple period bulova as an original "Academy Award Watch". Be careful as they may have located a case and just put a period watch in the box.

The originals are 21J, 14K gold and have a distinctive ribbed design on the face. The case should be marke L0, L1 or L2 only.

Hope this helps.

What did bob fosse do?

Fosse, who began his film work as a dancer and choreographer in the 1950s, gravitated to directing in the late 1960s. His first film was an energetic adaptation of the stage musical "Sweet Charity" and starred Shirley MacLaine as the title character. He had his greatest success with "Cabaret" (1972), the film version of the 1966 Tony Award-winning musical. The movie was nominated for 10 Academy Awards and won eight, including best director for Fosse. The two awards it didn't win were best picture and adapted screenplay, both of which went to "The Godfather." In the history of the Academy Awards, "Cabaret" remains the most honored film that didn't win the best picture Oscar. Fosse earned two other Oscar nominations, for directing "Lenny," a 1974 biography starring Dustin Hoffman as the acerbic stand-up comic Lenny Bruce; and for directing "All That Jazz," a 1979 drama (with musical numbers) starring Roy Scheider as a choreographer/director loosely based on Fosse himself. "All That Jazz" was nominated for nine Academy Awards and won four (art direction/set decoration, costume design, film editing and original score). It also tied Japanese director Akira Kurasawa's "Kagemusha" for the prestigious Palme d'Or at the 1980 Cannes Film Festival. Fosse's last film was "Star 80," a 1983 biopic starring Mariel Hemingway as the murdered 1980 Playboy Playmate of the Year Dorothy Stratten. He died of a heart attack on Sept. 23, 1987 at the age of 60.

How many awards did lucille ball win?

Yes. America's favorite redhead won four Emmys -- two for her work on "I Love Lucy" in the 1950s and two for "The Lucy Show" in the 1960s.

Has the academy ever rescinded an Academy Award?

No. It has done exactly the opposite. Screenplays written by Dalton Trumbo won two Academy Awards during the 1950s while he was being blacklisted for Communist influences. A 1953 Oscar for "Roman Holiday" was presented to Ian McLellan Hunter, who had acted as a "front" for Trumbo. A 1956 Oscar went to "The Brave One," which had been written by Trumbo using the name Robert Rich. No one accepted the award until 1975, when the Academy formally presented it to Trumbo under his own name. In 1993, 17 years after Trumbo's death, the Academy gave him credit for writing "Roman Holiday."
