The Academy Awards, also known as The Oscars, is an awards ceremony held by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences (AMPAS or "The Academy"). The first Academy Awards was held on May 16th, 1929 at the Hotel Roosevelt in Hollywood, California. Since then, the award has become so esteemed that it's now considered the undisputed mother of all awards shows, with viewership ratings far surpassing The Grammys, the Golden Globes, and others.

In the early 1990s, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences threatened legal action against a primetime BBC entertainment show called Noel's House Party, which featured a segment called the Gotcha Oscars in which host Noel Edmonds would British celebrities and give them a "Gotcha Oscar" for being such good sport. This segment was renamed the Gotchas after the threat of legal action.
