This Saturday — February 1 — kicks off the “31 Days of Oscar” program at Turner Classic Movies, and as always it’s a treasure trove of movie history. The full schedule, which continues through Oscar day on March 2, is here, and it’s full of some delicious-sounding movie marathons. You could, for example, watch all five nominees for costume design (color) in 1954 — “A Star Is Born,” “Gate of Hell,” “”Brigadoon,” “Desiree” and “There’s No Business Like Show Business” — late into the night on Feb. 3, or a full day of best original screenplay winners on Feb. 11 (“Hail the Conquering Hero,” “The Lady Eve,” “Ball of Fire,” “Adam’s Rib,” “Designing Woman,” “Lover Come Back,” and “Sleepless in Seattle”), or numerous other options.

New this year: the original documentary “And the Oscar Goes To,” directed by Oscar-winning documentarians Rob Epstein (“The Times of Harvey Milk,” “Common Threads: Stories from the Quilt”) and Jeffrey Friedman (“Common Threads: Stories from the Quilt”). Narrated by Anjelica Huston, the 95-minute film explores 86 years of Oscar history, with lots of rare footage and interview clips from past Oscar winners. It premieres Saturday at 8 p.m. on TCM, and will be repeated throughout the month. Happy Oscaring!
