The annual Academy Awards will take place on March 12. This year marks the 95th edition of the ceremony hosted by the Academy of Motion Picture, Art, and Sciences.

The first Oscars were held in May 1929 at the Roosevelt Hotel in Los Angeles to celebrate the achievements of Hollywood in 1927 and 1928. During that first ceremony, the awards for Best Actor categories and Best Actress went to Emil Jannings for ‘The Last Command’ and Janet Gaynor for her roles in ‘Seventh Heaven’, ‘The Fallen Angel,’ and ‘Breaking Dawn.’

Since those early days, many in Hollywood have attended the show, dreaming of holding up one of those golden statues. The actor with the most Oscars is Daniel Day-Lewis, who has three in the Best Actor category from six nominations. In the Best Actress category, Frances McDormand has earned four, surpassing Katherine Hepburn, with a fourth win two years ago.
