2015 Oscar Nominations

First of all, you should know that the Oscars are all about cinema. Unlike other awards shows, such as the People’s Choice Awards and the Golden Globes, TV isn’t a focus. The Oscars celebrate movies alone, by rewarding the achievements of a range of key players, from actors and actresses to directors, producers, screen writers, makeup artists and special events artists (and so much more).

For almost everyone who’s involved with Hollywood, this particular awards ceremony is the ultimate. This means that film industry professionals covet Oscars like no other award.

If you love the red carpet glamour, the anticipation and the pomp and circumstances of this venerable Hollywood institution, you’re certainly not alone. People all over the world show their love for the Oscars by holding viewing parties and testing their predictions as the statuettes are given out on the big night.
