Academy Awards

The Academy Awards, better known as the Oscars, are the highest honors in the film industry and are bestowed annually by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences at the Dolby Theatre in the Hollywood & Highland Center in Los Angeles. Following the ceremony, hosts like Vanity Fair and the Elton John AIDS Foundation draw A-list crowds, as does the Academy's own splashy Governors Ball. The 2016 Oscars took place on February 28; here's our archive of related coverage.
