In a year of major upsets, there is no doubt that Oscars have become one of the most-watched shows in the history of the Oscars.
But there is still a long way to go before the event is truly a coronation for the film and television industries.
The 2016 Oscars will be the first to be held in Los Angeles since the show’s inception in 1939, and the production will be a challenge.
The event has been a platform for social commentary since its inception, but there will be plenty of theatrics that could prove difficult for the production.
Al Jazeera spoke to a panel of Oscar experts, film and TV producers and the producers of the Academy Awards themselves to get a better understanding of how the Oscars will go down.
In the US, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences is hosting the event, with the UK’s Independent Film Awards taking place the same day.
However, the production team in LA will be working from London, which will offer a more manageable schedule and better accessibility.
The Oscars are hosted by the Academy, which has its own Oscars ceremony.
The ceremony takes place at Hollywood’s Dolby Theatre on January 29 and is the most prestigious of the four awards ceremonies.
The Academy has been holding its Oscars ceremonies since 1935, when the first film was nominated for best picture, with a few minor categories being added in between.
The first Oscars in 1936 were held at the Shrine Auditorium in Hollywood, with Oscar-winning silent film director George Roy Hill (1910-1994) winning best actor.
The other Oscar winners were silent film film and short films by such names as James Stewart, Buster Keaton, Orson Welles, John Ford and Al Pacino.
The most famous Oscar winner is Buster Keating, who won for best actor in “The Crucible” (1926), but the most memorable was the performance of Alfred Hitchcock, who famously received the Best Supporting Actor award for “The Birds” (1950).
The first Academy Awards ceremony in 1948 was held in New York City’s Lincoln Center, with George Burns, John Wayne and Alfred Hitchcock winning for best actors.
The film and comedy categories were split between silent film, drama and music, with silent films receiving a majority of the first prize.
Silent film was the most popular form of cinema in the 1920s, but by the 1960s, it was becoming increasingly mainstream.
In 1972, the first Academy of Film and Television Arts and Science Awards were held in Hollywood.
The awards, which had previously been held in Atlanta, were the largest event of the year and nominated the likes of Woody Allen, John Belushi and Spike Lee.
The main event was held at Hollywood and the first awards show since the awards ceremony in 1937 took place in Los, with performances by the likes as Michael Jackson, Sting, Tom Cruise and Jennifer Lopez.
The second Oscar show, which took place the following year, was the second major event after the Oscars, but was still a major event.
The show featured performances by James Dean, Billy Joel and Johnny Cash, with Elvis Costello, the rock band AC/DC, and several other artists appearing.
The only category not to feature a major act was drama, which was a mix of the best supporting actor and best supporting actress categories.
In 2004, the show returned to the Lincoln Center to host the Oscars again, this time as part of the 55th Annual Academy Awards, but this time, the ceremony was held outside Hollywood and was the first time since the first Oscars were held that it was broadcast live.
The 2017 Oscars are expected to draw a much larger audience, with many of the actors who were nominated for an Oscar in previous years making appearances.
The actors will include Mark Ruffalo, Robert De Niro, James Spader, Will Smith, and Scarlett Johansson.
The producers are expected, however, to be more cautious in their selections.
It will be difficult for producers to predict what the awards will feature this year, but the film industry has become more progressive in recent years, with studios offering a wider range of films.
There will be some major awards categories, including best picture and best actor, and it is expected that a number of the films will be nominees in a variety of categories.
This will not be the last time the Oscars feature film and drama awards, and awards for the best actress and best actress actress categories are expected as well.
The films to watch for are “Wonder Wheel” (2013), “The Birth of a Nation” (2014), “Gravity” (2016) and “Black Panther” (2017).
The best picture category, which is also expected to feature more than one film, will feature several films including “Lincoln” (2007), “Spotlight” (2009) and the Oscar-nominated “The Grand Budapest Hotel” (2011).
There are also many other categories in which there is a strong chance for one or two films to make the final nominations.
The biggest category in which the best actor
