Image Description: Previously called the Academy Awards, and now officially known as The Oscars, these are a set of awards given annually for excellence in cinematic achievements. The Oscar statue is officially named the Academy Award of Merit and is one of the nine types of Academy Awards achievable. The first awards were presented on May 16, 1929, at a private brunch at the Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel in front of an audience of approximately 270 people. The post Academy Awards party was hosted at the Mayfair Hotel; the cost of guest tickets for that night's ceremony was only five dollars! Fifteen statuettes were handed out, and they honored directors, artists and other personalities of the filmmaking industry for their works during the 1927-1928 period.
