Academy Award for Best Title Writing

Best Title Writing: The Academy Awards were established at the tail end of the Silent Era of Motion Pictures. Before the introduction of talkies, dialogue was dependent on the titles that appeared between scenes. Their importance was recognized at the first Academy Awards, which included a separate category for Best Title Writing. The award went to Joseph Farnham[?] for Telling the World[?]. Later Farnham also became the first Oscar recipient to die. The award was given only once, in 1928, the same year that a special award was given to Warner Brothers for producing the first sound film, The Jazz Singer. By the next award ceremonies, sound had already dominated the industry and the award for Best Title Writing was discontinued.
