Academy Awards

Learnex, English Forever ¡Aprende Inglés para Siempre!

The Academy Awards are the most famous and prestigious award ceremony in the film industry. Also known as The Oscars, this awards ceremony celebrates the best for artistic and technical merit of motion pictures each year since 1929. It is held at The Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles, California, just in the heart of Hollywood.

The nominees and winners are selected by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences and they vote to recognize excellence in cinematic achievements.  Some of the current categories are: Best Picture, Best Director, Best Original Screenplay, Best Costume Design, Best Original Song, Best Foreign Language Film, Best Animated Feature Film and of course Best Actress and Actor.

The last few years, the ceremony had been taken over by talented Mexican filmmakers such as Guillermo del Toro, Alfonso Cuarón or “El Chivo” Lubezki. But, there’s a fun fact that most people ignore about the Oscar award itself. The model of the coveted statuette was also a Mexican and was an outstanding one in terms of cinema. Emilio “El Indio” Fernández, did not only contribute with his talent as an actor and director of many iconic films, he was also the model the Academy used in 1928 to create the golden statuette design.
