As you may know, if you are a movie fan, the Oscars® are coming. In the night of the 26th Feb 2017, the Academy will hand once again the trophy that everyone in the movie industry is dreaming of – the Oscars®!
Each Academy Awards Ceremony is made out of the glamorous gown, brilliant jewelry, luxurious gifts, tears of joy or happiness and many other details. As we are simple programmers, we don’t care that much about these things…maybe a bit about Star Wars or The Arrival, but that’s already something else!
For us at Softescu, the Oscars® are a reason to think about a great website built using Drupal. The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, the organization behind the Oscars® contacted Acquia, one of our partners to launch a new Oscars.org using the Drupal CMS. Being given the data collected by this worldwide renowned event, the necessity of finding the best CMS was vital and of course, Drupal came as a normal solution. The site includes over 50k photos and videos including 87 years of Oscars® highlights and exclusive content from the Academy's library and archives.
Everyone was impressed by the end result and the LA Times described the website as "a clean, minimalist design, with simpler navigation than its predecessor."
