Winning an Academy Award is one of the best things that you can achieve in your career. The Academy Awards recognise talents from different sections. It is not just the Best Actor, Best Actress and Best Film.
From Directors to makeup artists, everyone plays a major role in the making of the movie, thus Oscar recognises and praises such talents.
We discussed about the first time Oscar nominees of 2015 who just got their names entered in the list of Oscar nominees.
Every year, we also get to see some old Oscar winners who already have the golden statuette decorated in their home. There are really great talents as well who not just own one but more Oscar awards.
2015 Oscar nominees also include some previous Oscar winners who are making a comeback at the award season with new roles and looks. From Meryl Streep to Clint Eastwood, we have some Oscar winners who are competing even this year for their new performances.
