Acting history Oscar

In the acting history Oscar, as the Academy Award is named, is one of the most important awards in the film world. Throughout the Academy Award history numerous people working in the film industry were rewarded for their contribution.

One of the most important developments in Acting history Oscar first ceremony was held on May 16, 1929. It was a quiet affair compared to the glamour and glitz that accompany the ceremonies of today. Since the winners were announced to the press on Monday, February 18, 1929 - three months early - the 250 people who attended the black-tie banquet in the Blossom Room of the Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel weren't anxious for the results to be announced. The statuettes that were presented to the first Awards winners were nearly identical to those handed out today. It was designed by MGM art director Cedric Gibbons and sculpted by George Stanley. The Academy Award of Merit (Oscar's official name) was a knight.

The official word from the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences is that the current Oscar statuette is made of britannia metal, a pewter-like alloy which is plated in copper, nickel silver, and 24-karat gold, stands 13 1/2" tall, and weighs 8 1/2 pounds. The base of the statuette is metal.

Though the actual story of how the Academy Award of Merit came to be known as the Oscar is unclear, the most popular story has been that Academy librarian - and eventual executive director - Margaret Herrick believed it looked a lot like her Uncle Oscar. After she made that observation, the Academy staff began calling the award 'Oscar.' The Academy didn't officially use the nickname until 1939.

And so we see that another important stage in acting history Oscar Ceremony is broadcast live in over 200 countries worldwide. To win one is the greatest reward for your work as an actor. In order to win one, you need to do what it takes to become an actor.

The very first person to receive one of the Academy Awards didn't attend the first ceremony. Emil Jannings, the winner for best actor, had decided to go back to his home in Germany before the ceremony. Before he left for his trip, Jannings was handed the very first in. acting history Oscar
