The 82nd Annual Academy Awards

The 82nd Annual Academy Awards

The Academy Awards have been a monumental celebration in the industry of motion pictures for 82 annual ceremonies now. The impact that reigns from even being nominated for an award, let alone winning one, can move actors, actresses, producers, directors, or studios into an entirely new level of recognition. Being tied into an Oscar consideration has brought some of the relatively unknown into super-stardom.

For the past century of film and broadcast, nothing has had more of an effect upon the success of those involved in the movie industry, more than the epic Oscar nomination and victory. Only the most excellent of the realm are invited to participate in this catastrophic award show. This year, for 2010, we expect no less than perfection.

The celebration is slated to take place on March 7th of 2010, at the Kodak Theatre in Hollywood, Los Angeles, California. Slated to be televised in the United States on ABC networks. Actors Alec Baldwin and Steve Martin are assigned to host the awards ceremony. Martin will make his appearance as host for the third time, after previously presiding over the 73rd and 75th ceremonies, while Baldwin will host the show for the first time.

The official nominees for the 82nd annual Academy Awards will be announced live on Tuesday, February 2, 2010 at the Samuel Goldwyn Theater in Beverly Hills, California, by Tom Sherak, president of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences (AMPAS) and a guest announcer.

New this year, is an upgrade from the usual five Best Picture nominations, to ten total Best Picture nominations. This is an increase that will allow many other popular films to be considered for the "Best Picture" award, which is always the "Main Event" so to speak of the ceremony. A bit of fact chasing here, is that from 1932 to 1943 there were ten nominations for "Best Picture" (in 1934 and 1935, in fact, there were 12), but for the ceremony honoring 1944's best movies, the Academy switched that number to the current five which has held up until this year. The increase is due to the extremely large amount of successful box office films which were premiered in 2009.

We certainly expect this years ceremony to be high profile. 2009 was a record breaking year for the entertainment industry, with many films such as Transformers 2, District 9, Avatar, Terminator Salvation, Star Trek, Harry Potter And The Half-Blood Prince, Inglourious Basterds, Up, Public Enemies, Twilight: New Moon, and many others, all reaching an extreme amount of international box office sales.

Considering the unprecedented and success of 2009, it's looked back upon by critics as one of the best years in motion pictures in nearly a decade, even while the world economy is struggling. Further showing that if they produce quality films, then people will pay the price to see the films.

One thing is certain, the 82nd annual Academy Awards will be highly rated and viewed all over the world, and it will clarify which of all the great films of 2009, were considered the best by the insiders of Hollywood.

As soon as the nominees are announced, we will post them here on ET Articles, exclusively for our community. Respect to the Oscar award and the Academy Award ceremony, as for many years it's created a dominant showing amongst the best in film, and it's been a breakout leap for so many in Hollywood. Let's only hope that 2010 offers each of us as many great films as 2009 did, and thus far from the way this year has kicked off, it's looking more and more like it will be another major year for highly anticipated films.
