9 strange facts about the Oscars you didn’t know
A man looks away in Oppenheimer.

The Academy Awards ceremony has been held since 1929, with the ceremony broadcast via radio for the first time in 1930. In 1953, the event was first televised and has been ever since. As the oldest of the major annual entertainment awards in America, the Academy Awards are a huge production. It's not just about the honor of being nominated -- earning an Academy Award can be career-changing.

You might think you know everything there is to know about the Oscars, but as you gear up for the 2024 Academy Awards, here are lesser-known interesting facts about its origins, past, and how things run behind the scenes that you'll find fascinating.

All the 2024 Best Picture Oscar nominees, ranked
Ryan Gosling and Margot Robbie as Barbie and Ken singing in a car in Barbie.

Early this morning (like, perversely early, as is tradition), Zazie Beetz and Jack Quaid presented a bleary-eyed America with the nominations for the 96th Annual Academy Awards. There were few big surprises among the 10 films selected to compete for Best Picture — it was an expected lineup that had solidified into gospel over the past few weeks. By nominations day, we usually have a pretty good idea of what movies we’re going to hear named. 

Maybe that inevitability would be more disheartening if this weren’t a fairly solid crop of contenders. There are no true follies competing for Best Picture this year. And at the top, there are two near-masterpieces — including the best movie of the year, which happens to be the frontrunner, too. The lineup also covers a spectrum of budgets and definitions of success, with the year’s biggest sensations going toe-to-toe with smaller international fare (including an unprecedented three films entirely or mostly in a language other than English).

10 biggest Oscar snubs ever, ranked

Oh yes, the Academy Awards. Widely considered the pinnacle of Hollywood success this side of a billion-dollar franchise, the Oscars are the business' most coveted award, the proof that you've officially made it. Presented by the Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences, the Oscars are an annual event supposedly honoring the "best" in cinema, whatever "best" means. In truth, they're a political event where the performance matters as much as a well-constructed narrative and a far-reaching campaign.

Thus, throughout the Oscars' 95-year history, many actors, movies, directors, and behind-the-camera talent have been ignored despite being among the best-reviewed of their respective years. These snubs have gone down in history as some of the Academy's most egregious mistakes, sometimes even passing the winners themselves in popularity and relevance. And while the Academy will surely keep handing out golden statuettes, they will likely never live down these snubs.
