Event Overview:

The statistics in the Notes section could be updated if anyone here is able and willing to find the information.

In the Awards section, these two items could be removed as they are meant to be listed with a year and they are already included in the timeline below:
"The scientific and technical awards become an independent dinner presentation for the first time."
"The honorary awards, traditionally a part of the spring Oscar ceremony, are moved to an extra ceremony called Governor Awards."

In the Historical Timeline, the entries for the two separate ceremonies in 1930 are the same. It looks like the first three items are about the first ceremony, the last two about the second ceremony.

Finally, I am disappointed that the ceremony dates are not listed. The dates, venues and hosts were part of the event data listed years ago.

Hi Peter -

Thanks for posting these event overview page change requests, I have filed a ticket for our editorial staff to review them.  Once I have a status on these requests I will let you know here.

Possible updates to the stats in the notes section:

The number of Academy members is now more than 8,000.

The list of venues should include the 17 years at the Kodak Theatre, renamed Dolby Theatre, as of 2018. I believe this is the only addition to that list.

In the description of the Oscar statuette, correct the link to Cedric Gibbons (I).

The composition of the statuette has changed. I suggest this edit to the description:

Each statuette is made from bronze (previously britannium) with a finish of 24-karat gold. It stands 13-1/2 inches tall and weighs 8-1/2 pounds.

Also:

As of 2017, 124 countries have submitted films for the foreign-language category at least once over the years.

(This is according to Wikipedia, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_countries_by_number_of_Academy_Awards_for_Best_Foreign_Languag... so I'm not 100% certain of its accuracy.)

Hi Peter -

I'm just following up here to confirm that we are currently unable to support requests to add data to these event pages.  However, I have updated this thread to an "Idea" for visibility and tracking these data change requests.
