Academy Awards Spread

On This Day

Tickets to the first Oscar event cost $5; 270 people attended, and the ceremony lasted only 15 minutes.

The first Academy Awards, commonly known as the Oscars, was held on this day in 1929. A gala private dinner was given at the Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel in Los Angeles. It was a far cry from the pomp and circumstance accompanying its modern ceremony.

Summation of Spread

You are the star of your life. The Academy Awards Spread channels the glitz and glamour of the Oscars to inform its questions. (For a fortunetelling experiment, pull cards to make predictions on who will take home the gold on Hollywood’s biggest night.)

Like an Academy Award winner, the Ace of Pentacles depicts a gold object in hand. Will you walk through the garden gate of opportunity? The Ace of Pentacles signifies financial gain, prosperity, and a chance to begin afresh.

Cast Your Cards

Avoid those pesky paparazzi, don a pair of shades, and cast the cards in the shape of a martini glass.
