Academy Award History
I like this site from Britannica. First, the years pop up on the left-hand side. Then you click on a year, and the winners in various categories pop up, along with a strip of film of movies of that particular year.

Women in Jazz
A wonderful section by Sherrie Tucker for the PBS JAZZ SERIES (from Ken Burns) site. Not only does it discuss the great jazz recordings from women, but also gives audio samples. Be patient with the site loading.
