The Academy Awards, also known as the Oscars, are a set of 24 awards for artistic and technical excellence in the film industry, given annually by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences (AMPAS), to recognize excellence in cinematic achievements as assessed by the Academy’s voting membership.
