The Academy Awards Ceremony

The Academy Awards Ceremony

Created in 1929, the Academy Awards ceremony rewards the most outstanding films of the year. It is the most awaited and feared moment of the 7th art industry, which takes place at the beginning of the year in Los Angeles. The stars of the world flock there.

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences awards ceremony

Since 1929, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences has managed the awarding of the Oscars. The association, dedicated to the worldwide promotion and preservation of cinema, was created in 1927 by Louis Mayer, at the time head of Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer.

At the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles, on an evening in February or March depending on the year, the Academy Awards ceremony is the most anticipated moment of the year for the 7th art. It also offers the most elegant red carpet in Hollywood.

To be nominated for an Oscar, a film must be released in Los Angeles County, California, between January 1 and December 31 of the year preceding the ceremony. The five most nominated names or titles in each category are nominated, while the Academy members choose the nominees in the Oscar category related to their professional field. Thus, actors vote for the Best Actor and Best Actress categories, and directors vote for Best Director.

The winners are selected in a second round of voting, uninominal, in which all members participate, without professional distinction. Over the years, new categories have appeared, such as Best Foreign Language Film in 1947, and Best Animated Film in 2001.

Is the ceremony held without a presenter?

In 2019, the Academy Awards ceremony was held without a presenter, which has not happened since 1988. The reason? Kevin Hart's presence as master of ceremonies had been canceled after the broadcast of old homophobic tweets.

The following year, the 92nd Academy Awards ceremony was held without a host for the second year in a row. In this case, several celebrities take turns presenting the various awards of the evening.
