Oscar statues

Awards Season is always an exciting one for moviegoers and industry professionals alike, as the year's best and brightest are showcased and duke it out for various accolades. After The Golden Globes kick things off, various other ceremonies follow including the SAG Awards, Writer's Guild and BAFTA's. But the pièce de résistance is always the season's final show: The Academy Awards. The Nominees vie for the golden statues, and tonight will reveal who is adding an Oscar to their awards shelf.

It's been a fascinating season, featuring Bradley Cooper's directorial debut A Star Is Born, foreign film frontrunner Roma, and Freddie Mercury biopic Bohemian Rhapsody. The Golden Globes saw the trophy wealth spread out across various projects, but the Film Academy operates on its own standards. As such, there's a level of mystery involving this year's ceremony, and it's all being revealed tonight courtesy of ABC.
