The Academy Awards are known as the Oscars, and they honor artistic and technical achievement in the film industry. Most of the people consider him the most prestigious and important award of the entertainment industry. The Motion Picture Arts and Sciences (AMPAS) Awards are an international recognition of excellence in cinematic achievements, as assessed by its voting members. As a trophy, the winner of each category receives a Golden Statue, officially known as the “Academy Award of Merit”, although it is more commonly referred to as the “Oscar”. Based in the Art Deco style, the statue represents a knight.
The 93rd Academy Awards ceremony for Best Films in 2020 and early 2021 was held on April 25, 2021, after being postponed from its original February 28 schedule due to the COVID-19 pandemic. As in the previous two ceremonies, no host was present. The program was broadcast by ABC. The event was held at the Dolby Theater in Los Angeles, California for the 19th consecutive year, with a satellite location at Union Station in Los Angeles.
About 270 people attended the first Academy Awards presentation on May 16, 1929, at a private dinner ceremony at the Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel. There was a party at the Mayfair Hotel. Tickets for the ceremony that night cost $5 ($75 on 2020 prices). A total of fifteen statues were awarded during the period 1927–28 to honor artists, directors and other filmmakers for their contributions. The ceremony lasted for 15 minutes.
The winners were announced three months ago. The second ceremony was held three months later. Since then, for the rest of the first decade, the results have been released for publication in newspapers at 11:00 on the evening of the awards. However, before the ceremony began in 1940, the LA Times began announcing the winners of the Oscars, forcing the Academy to use a sealed envelope from 1941 to reveal the winners.
