Since race for the movie awards is getting heated up, we decided to bring you most prestigious movie awards around the world. Most movie awards have categories that cover the most important elements of making the movie. Although the categories can vary from one award to another, the main few are usually always there: Best Movie, Best Director, Best Actor/Actress, and Best Supporting Actor/Actress.
All movie awards usually fit in one of the four categories: Critics’ Awards, Festival Awards, Industry Awards and Audience Awards. Critics’ Awards are voted by the movie critics, who usually vote annually while Audience Awards are voted by the audience. When it comes to Industry Awards, the winners are voted by the people who work in some branch of the movies. Festival Awards are being given to the best movies that are shown in a particular festival.
