The Academy Awards, also known as The Oscars, is one of the most recognizeable and significant awards in the entertainment industry. Run by the Academy of Motion Pictures and Sciences (AMPAS), the ceremony celebrates entertainers and creatives within the movie industry no matter if they are on-screen or off. Awards are given out to actors, actresses, writers and musicians who took part in the best movie and short-film releases. This year’s 95th Oscar Awards will award the best motion pictures of 2022.

The first-ever Oscars ceremony was held in 1929 and was hosted by the first president of the AMPAS, Douglas Fairbanks, at the Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel in Los Angeles, California. It was the first award show of its kind, with the Emmys, Grammys, and Tony Awards coming to fruition years after. It was a small private dinner at the time, but soon became a nationally watched event with the first televised ceremony being in 1953.

The Oscars is regarded as the highest and most honored award for those in the movie industry. The lucky winners get to take home the iconic Oscar statue, a golden art deco inspired knight that has been a tradition since the first private Academy Award dinner. 

The 2023 Oscars will be streamed live from Dolby Theater at Ovation Hollywood on Sunday, March 12 at 5 p.m. PST. Watch it live on ABC!
