Ever Wonder where the name “Oscars” came from? Hit the jump to find out how the whole “Ocars” came about!

The Academy Awards started in 1929, with the very first show at a Hollywood Hotel. The Academy of Motion picture Arts and Sciences was started as a labor union between actors and producers, which was later referred to as “The Academy.” The thing was, actors weren’t getting the money, and credit that they wanted and The Academy felt like they did deserve a little more glory for what they’ve been doing. The Idea’s were growing and plans were set to start “The Academy Awards.” Once the sketching of the trophies were finished, a librarian from The Academy said it looked like her uncle Oscar lol. Make sure you tune in tomorrow!
