The undisputed champion of all of the movie awards ceremonies, The Academy Awards, known to most as The Oscars, takes place in Hollywood this weekend, at the famous Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles.
For all the Oscars latest, nominations, predictions and live streaming:
Without a doubt the most prestigious of all of the US awards ceremonies, the Oscars brings all the famous names to Hollywood to recognise the greatest achievements in the movie industry over the last 12 months. Big things are expected from box office hits such as 12 Years a Slave, The Wolf of Wall Street, American Hustle and Gravity, although there is also much attention of the smaller and independent categories as well.
The Oscars are the premier
film awards ceremony internationally, and mark the culmination of a long season of awards ceremonies worldwide, including the Grammy Awards and the BAFTA Awards in London.
Unlike most award categories, the categories of Best Makeup, Best Foreign Language Film, and Best Visual Effects each have a multiple-stage nomination process. For these awards, specific Academy branches choose pre-nominees and then, from that list, final nominees. From the list of final nominees, the AMPAS membership selects the award winner. For example, seven Best Makeup pre-nominees were narrowed down to three final nominees, from which the entire AMPAS membership will choose a winner.
