- The Oscars - Free Bets and new Cusomer Incentives
- The Academy Awards are known universally as The Oscars Ceremony. It's the biggest movie award ceremony in the world and presented by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences. Actors, producers and directors dream of getting their hands on an Oscar statuette as the awards recognize the greatest achievements in the movie industry over the past year.
The award ceremony first took place in 1929 at the Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel in front of an audience of 270 people and lasted just 15 minutes. The awards have been known as The Oscars since 1931. Just why they have acquired that title isn't known for sure. The most accepted explanation is that the Academy's executive secretary Margaret Herrick felt the statue resembled her uncle Oscar.
They were first televised in 1953 and the event is now watched annually in more than 200 countries and lasts several hours. A whole range of famous people have hosted the awards, usually top comedians with Bob Hope holding the record for hosting the awards on 19 occasions.
Members of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences vote for who they should win each category. Nominations are announced at the end of January with the ceremony taking place in February. Once the nominees have been announced, focus is switched to looking at the potential winners and as with all major events these days, there is potential to be had in the Oscars betting market!
