Never has there been a break or a year when d Award was not given,unlike d Olympic games, & other awards like d Pulitzer which is sometimes not awarded due to d absence of any novel, musical, press, & other categories having d quality to receive d award that year. Therefore a gala event was held each Spring & d continuity of this award was presented even during d 2 World Wars, as d US joined d war after d aerial attack on Pearl Harbor on Dec 7,1941 by d Imperial Japanese Navy against d US.
  • Dedicated to d development of d Arts & Science of d Motion Pic Industry, d Academy's corporate management & general policies r overseen by a group of Governors which includes d members of each craft branches involved with d Industry.
