The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences oversees the Oscar nominations and voting procedures for the event. The Academy, with over 6,000 members, is a professional honorary society of people involved in all aspects of filmmaking.

There are currently 24 categories of awards on display during the ceremony, with several Oscars awarded for other outstanding achievements ahead of the official ceremony. Top Oscars include Best Supporting Actor, Best Supporting Actor, Best Picture, Best Director, Best Costumes, Music for Best Supporting Actor, Best Visual Effects etc.

How does it work

It is the sound that determines which films, directors, actors, etc. will be nominated for an Oscar. This process is very long and complicated, with more than 8,000 cast members and more than 100 films, directors, actors, etc.

It is important to have the right to be appointed. It also includes strict procedures and special instructions to follow. Most films also have the right to compete. Many films from India have entered the Oscar this year. Here are some of the most promising films of the year.

Nominations from India

 

Many Indian celebrities and films have won Oscars (also known as Oscars) in various categories. As of 2021, 13 Indians have been nominated and eight have won Oscars, including in the science and technology categories.

 

India’s encounter with the Oscars, also known as the Oscars, began when India’s mother Mehbub Khan was officially nominated for Best Foreign Language Film in 1957. Since then, films like Lagan and Salam Bombay have also been nominated for Best Foreign Language Film. Although no Indian film has won an Oscar, there are certainly individuals who have inspired India. Songwriter Banu Ataya is songwriter A.R. Rahman, very few Indians have received the Oscar statue at home.
