Oscars Wiki is a collaborative website about the Academy Awards that anyone can edit! While numerous movie databases exist, this wiki is dedicated to Oscar-nominated films, people, and the awards themselves.
The Academy Awards (also known as the Oscars) is perhaps the most notable awards ceremony in the world, with a million viewers in over 100 countries. Trophies are awarded to the best in many categories, including directors, actors, writers, films, and editing.
The 85th Academy Awards ceremony, during which the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences (AMPAS) will present its annual Academy Awards to honor the best films of 2012, is scheduled for February 24, 2013, at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood, California. Seth MacFarlane will host the Academy Awards for the first time. Read More...
