And the winner is...!
Exciting times for all film lovers and filmmakers - after the Golden Globes and with the Oscars just around the corner!
The official list of nominees has just been announced a few days ago and we are thrilled to see so many quality productions!
The Oscars aka the Academy Awards is the most awaited and most prestigious award ceremony in the entire film industry. Did you know that the first Academy Awards ceremony took place in 1929 and was first televised in 1953?
Have you ever wondered what's the difference between the Golden Globes and the Oscars?
For starters The Golden Globes praise both TV and film, whilst The Academy Awards focus on film only.
The voting process is different between the two shows too as the Golden Globes are chosen by members of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HFPA).
Meanwhile, The Oscars have a more complicated process as winners are chosen by around 7,000 members of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences and they cover each area in the industry.
Now that we've got the basics covers let's have a look at the Best Actress and Best Actors nominees, shall we?
Who's your favourite in the "Actress in a Leading Role" category?
Cynthia Erivo, "Harriet"
Scarlett Johansson, "Marriage Story"
Saoirse Ronan, "Little Women"
Renée Zellweger, "Judy"
Charlize Theron, "Bombshell"
And who are you rooting for in the "Actor in a Leading Role" category?
Antonio Banderas, "Pain and Glory"
Leonardo DiCaprio, "Once Upon a Time...in Hollywood"
Adam Driver, "Marriage Story"
Joaquin Phoenix, "Joker"
Jonathan Pryce, "The Two Popes"
The awards ceremony will air on February 9th in the USA, and February 10th in Europe due to time difference.
And remember, even the biggest winners have started somewhere! If you dream about becoming a great actor and getting your own statue one day - the time is now to start.
