What Nobel is to science and arts, Oscar is to the world of movies and entertainment.

It was originally conceived by Metro Goldwyn Meyer studio boss Louis B Meyer. The first award was made in the year 1929 on May 16.

The first thing that comes in mind when we hear the word “Oscars”, are the awards. And the next thing that comes in to our mind is the fashion. The gowns and tuxedos that the actors and actresses wear on the red carpet have been huge trend setters over the years. Just before they enter the auditorium, they pose for the camera and fans and show off what they have worn. They are then called aside by one of the hosts and are asked to describe their dress design to give the public an idea on their taste for fashion.

Buzz is on about the Annual Academy Awards ceremony. Lovingly dubbed as the Oscars it had no fixed categories till the 1920’s. Here are the categories in the 84th year of this glorious awards ceremony: Best Actor in a Leading Role; Best Actor in a Supporting Role; Best Actress in a Leading Role; Best Actress in a Supporting Role; Best Adapted Screenplay; Best Animated Feature; Best Animated Short Film; Best Art Direction; Best Cinematography; Best Costume Design; Best Director; Best Documentary Feature; Best Documentary Short Subject; Best Film Editing; Best Foreign Language Film; Best Makeup; Best Original Score; Best Original Screenplay; Best Original Song; Best Original Story; Best Picture Best Sound Editing; Best Sound Mixing; Best Visual Effects; Live Action Short Film.

Some of the earlier Oscar award winners are Colin Firth, Tom Hanks, Charlton Heston and Marlon Brando. Colin Firth achieved international reorganization in the year 1995 with his definitive screen portrayal of Fitzwilliam Darcy in the BBC adaptation of Jane Austen's “Pride and Prejudice”. Another winner, Thomas Jeffrey is a renowned actor, producer, writer, and director. Hanks is known for his roles as Andrew Beckett in Philadelphia and as Forrest Gump in Forrest Gump. These roles helped him to won two consecutive Academy Awards for the Best Actor. Now the next Oscar ceremony is going to take place soon. At that time we can recollect our earlier Oscar award winners and their field of specialization.

Oscars involve all the big celebrities coming and receiving various awards. Oscars have been given importance all over the world.
