The Academy Award Portal

The Academy Awards, popularly known as the Oscars, are the most prominent and most watched film awards ceremony in the world. Awarded annually by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences since 1929 in Los Angeles, it recognizes excellence in many aspects of motion picture making, such as acting, directing, and screenwriting.

Academy Awards are granted by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences (AMPAS), a professional honorary organization, which as of 2007 had a voting membership of 5,830. Actors, with a membership of 1,311, make up the largest voting bloc at 22 percent. The votes have been tabulated and certified by the auditing firm PricewaterhouseCoopers and its predecessor Price Waterhouse for 72 years, since close to the awards' inception.

The 81st Academy Awards was held at the Kodak Theatre in Hollywood, California on Sunday, February 22, 2009. The ceremony honoring the best of film for 2008 was hosted for the first time by Australian actor, singer, and dancer Hugh Jackman.
