DENVER - Jan. 15, 2020 - PRLog -- Although women have been greatly honored in various Oscar categories, their nominations and wins have been scarce in many others. How do this year's Oscar nominations stand up?.

A primer on the topic of women and film is now available. Women have been in the film business since the beginning of its existence, when it was a mere flicker of light on the screen. But, not until Hollywood: Her Story, An Illustrated History of Women and the Movies (Lyons Press), has the extent of their filmmaking contributions – both in front of and behind the camera – been captured and documented so eloquently.  The beautifully illustrated volume coffee table style book, 9.3" x 11", is an expansive 400 pages.

Best Actress and Beyond
In addition to the acting Oscars, Best Screenplay, Best Costume Design, Best Sound Mixing, Best Film Editing, and Best Production Design are just a few of the Oscar categories won by talented, enterprising women over the years.

As the 92nd Academy Awards approach, film buffs of all ages will delight in this award-winning, visually-stunning book.

Hollywood: Her Story, with a foreword by filmmaker, activist and philanthropist Abigail E. Disney, illustrates and brings to life the many women who contributed to the Hollywood film industry over the years. Beginning in 1896 with pioneering female director, Alice Guy-Blaché, authors Jill S. Tietjen, P.E. and Barbara Bridges take readers through a photo-treasury of women and film. From movie legends to directors, producers, editors, screenwriters, stuntwomen, composers, cinematographers and others - more than 1,200 women who have added their talent and creativity in the many categories needed to make a movie are featured in this enlightening and entertaining book.

Praise for Hollywood: Her Story
"It is a great honor to be included in Hollywood: Her Story, alongside so many extraordinary women who have inspired me throughout my life and career." Sherry Lansing, former president of 20th Century Fox, former Chairman and CEO of Paramount Pictures.
