The Golden Globes have been and gone, but The Oscars are arriving soon and the nominations will come even sooner. The two awards shows are different, coming from different judging panels who decide upon the winner. But what are The Oscars and when are they?

The Oscars, technically known as the Academy Awards, is an annual awards ceremony which honours the year before’s best film work, spotlighting acting, writing, producing, and technical aspects of film making.

The first Academy Awards ceremony was held in 1929, and has continued almost every year since, with it also being shown live on ABC Network for viewers at home.
How do the nominees get chosen? Is it different to the Golden Globes?

For the Oscars, the winners are decided by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences (AMPAS) which has approximately 7,000 members.

The membership is divided into different branches which depend on its discipline in film production.

The different groups will then vote using an online ballot system to determine which actors, writers etc. are nominated, and they are allowed to make up to five nominations, and 10 for the Best Film category.
This voting system then works similarly to the Golden Globes, with the ranking of each nomination playing a part in how many “points” it receives, which will then determine which nominations become the official nominations.

After this, the members will then vote on who should win, and the nominee with the most number of votes takes home the prize.

Differently to the Golden Globes, The Oscars only takes films into consideration, rather than film and TV, and films must play in a cinema for seven consecutive days to qualify for the awards.
