The Acting Award
An acting award is given to an actor for his or her performance on film. The category was first given to Emil Jannings in 1927 for The Way of All Flesh. Gregory Peck was recognized for his performance as Hamlet in Hamlet (1948), Laurence Olivier for the role of Hamlet in Hamlet (1948), Humphrey Bogart, for The African Queen (1951), and Humphrey Bogart (1927 for The Way of All Flesh). Some of the more popular actors of the past have received an acting award, including Tom Hanks, who won twice for his roles in On the Waterfront (1954) and The Godfather (2001).
In 1928, 12 categories were approved by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences. These awards recognized the best of the year in a variety of fields, including acting. The list recognizes excellence in film production, including comedy, drama directing, cinematography and engineering effects, as well as original story or adaptation writing. In addition to the main actor and actress, there are categories for supporting actors. This list is not exhaustive and may never reach its full potential.

An actor who wins an award receives money, fame, and an award plaque. The awards are a significant boost to an actor’s career. An award is a recognition by peers, critics, and colleagues. It can also lead to new opportunities for actors and a pay rise. So, the Academy Awards are not just for actors, but also for the entire industry.
