Therefore, the public masses are simply obliged to single out the most outstanding cultural workers. The most prestigious in cinema is the Oscar, which has been awarded for more than a dozen years …
There are many popular awards in the art world, which are given for great success in certain fields of activity. The most famous is undoubtedly the Academy Award, which was established by the American Academy of Motion Picture Arts. It is considered the most coveted and prestigious award in the world of cinematography. The first Oscar was awarded on May 16, 1929. The award ceremony was broadcast on radio until 1953; now it is broadcast live on television in many countries of the world.
Unlike other film awards, the Oscars are awarded not by the choice of a selected jury, but by universal suffrage by the members of the American Academy of Motion Picture Arts. For such democracy, the award has gained popularity all over the world, and its rating has not fallen over the years. The prize is presented in the form of a golden statuette depicting a knight with a sword on a reel of film. Why is she named an Oscar?
The first version is associated with Margaret Herrick, the librarian of the Film Academy, who once said that the figurine reminds her of her uncle. According to another assumption, the godmother of the "Oscar" is considered the queen of Hollywood in the 50s Bette Davis, who called the award after her first husband.
Today the Oscar has 24 nominations, in which the best applicants are selected to be awarded the coveted statuette. The Oscar is awarded every year in Hollywood for outstanding service in the field of motion pictures and contributions to the development of the film industry.
