The Ultimate Dream of Reaching the Oscars from the Academy Awards

By Rita Subscribe to RSS | June 11th 2012 | Views:

Movies are the perfect source of entertainment preferred by most of the people often. Even a set of people who got least in common can still enjoy watching a movie together. Be it a full length movie or a short film, they hive off the viewers from reality. And with the rapid advancement in technology the film fraternity has been benefitted like any other business field. The hi-fi technology used in the movies has raised the standards many fold, thanks to some of the innovative movie directors who took the efforts to present the best motion picture to the audience. The creative collaboration of a director and a graphic expert combined with the advancement of technologies can bring anything alive on the screen.

From extinct dinosaurs to obscure future happenings, Movies are capable to take us along the line by blanking out the present. A humanly impossible stunt, futuristic scenes that are hard to imagine normally and unexpected twists that brings us to the tip of the seats – right ingredient on right sequence is the important factor that makes a movie very special. Even when we are watching a movie that can’t possibly happen in real life, we are still awestricken by the way it is presented and get the intention to watch over and over again.

The word Oscar is really just the nickname for the actual award statuettes and their images. There are several stories about the nickname's origin, and nobody is completely sure of the truth. However one of the versions is supported by the academy, Margaret Herrick a librarian in Academy during early ‘30s, once remarked that the award statue given looks like her Uncle Oscar. That’s how the academy staff members started referring to the statue as Oscar. In 1934 the famous columnist Sidney Skolsky mentioned the nickname in his editorial on Katharine Hepburn's first Best Actress win. The name was then officially adopted by the Academy in 1939. The statuette weights 8.5 pounds and is 13.5 inches tall. It is made up of metal alloy and plated with gold – the Oscar figure is mounted to a round black base to decorate the showcase of the winner.

I watched the Oscar show on the TV channel provided by my service provider Xfinity. It was awesome show. The initial stage of finding Oscar winners is by short listing all the possible productions in a given year to five top nominees for each award category. As far as the eligibility criteria goes, a movie must meet these basic requirements set by the Academy. The selection of nominees is done professionally at this stage, which means experts from that category are only allowed to cast their votes to select nominees. Movies from outside USA are chosen by separate panel of adjudicators selected from all branches of the academy. Foreign film nominees are usually selected from the list of movies submitted by their originating nation.

These are some of the norms of the movie awards. Besides the Oscars there are other prestigious awards like the Grammy awards and the Golden Globe awards. Winning these awards is a dream for anyone who steps in to the film industry. It is true that a movie performer gets his boost from the clap sound of thousands of fans standing up on their feet when the actor gets the movie awards.
