Every year in the world of arts, masterpieces are made, be it music, film, theater or television. In order to honor these works of art, titles and awards were to be bestowed on the makers of such fine works. The Oscar is one such award that is given to Films. The Oscars also have categories which award non Hollywood movies too. It is a cutthroat competition to get into the Oscar nominations with all the movies that are being produced. The Oscars are an annual event hosted by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences (AMPAS).
The Oscars make a buzz every year, it is one of the most viewed televised events, but this was not the case nearly 90 years ago. The first Oscar ceremony was held in a hotel with barely any attendance and succeeding years they were just announced on the radio or communicated by newspapers next day. Overtime, film became more widespread and was made accessible to the masses, the Oscars gained traction and hit the small screens. But in 2021, a significant decision was taken, it was declared that movies which never had a theater release were also eligible to win an Oscar, under the condition they would be released in the future.
The prestigious award ceremony also has its own share of being known for other things too, veteran actor Leonardo DiCaprio after winning his first Oscar for Revenant in 2016 used the platform to address climate change, Will smith slapping Chris Rock for a joke he made on stage was the biggest talk of the 2021 Oscar ceremony. And of course let’s not forget the fashion styles showcased by various celebrities, some are amazing, some are humble, some are simple and some are…let’s say their sense of fashion is something we cannot comprehend.
