Awards for Oscars 1929 — 2017 · Event History

The Academy Awards (The Oscar) is the most influential, the most waited and the most prestigious annual ceremony of honoring film achievements in the movie industry in the USA. The winners in different categories are given a gilded statuette which is known by its nickname the Oscar giving prestige and top profits to film directors, performers and studios. The ceremony, applicants and winners are supervised by the Academy of Motion Picture and Sciences. The Academy now counts almost 6000 experts in motion picture industry. Though a major part of the members is based in the USA, still qualified experts in movie industry from all over the globe can become the Academy members.
For the very first time the Academy Awards even was held in 1929, on May 16. It was realized in a format of a private party at the Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel which was visited by a group of film enthusiasts of little more than 270 people. The first ceremony gave only 15 statuettes honoring film artists and personalities of movie making industry. The first Award ceremony lasted only for about 15 minutes. Initially winners of the Oscar Award were announced 3 months prior. Then the results of the Award were given to newspapers only at 11 a.m. on the ceremony night. The first statuette for the Best Actor was given Emil Jannings.
The Oscar statuette is legally encumbered to be sold to anybody before offering the award back to the Academy. The Academy has developed a set of rules for a film to quality for the Oscar award.
