‘All-Star’ is on the rise for the 2017-18 academy awards
The All-Star game will see the stars of the world, the winners and the finalists, being handed awards for their achievements at the end of the season.
The 2018-19 edition of the annual awards is the second annual awards, which will be announced on January 1.
The awards are a series of awards handed out to the best performers in the world at a particular age group, which were designed to reward the players who have put in the most effort in a season.
Actors including Emma Thompson, Keira Knightley and Jamie Foxx have been recognised for their outstanding performances this year, with former actor Tom Hardy and former NBA player Mark Cuban also in the running.
But the award for the top performer is a hotly contested one, with the BBC’s award committee currently considering whether to award the best actor award, or simply the best director award.
In a poll by the BBC, there was widespread agreement that the best actress award is the most hotly contested.
The BBC said that it wanted to recognise performances from both the best and worst performers at the time.
“We were pleased to see that so many of the stars who have been the most consistently good or great this year were also in contention for the award, so that it is up to the committee to decide which of the contenders will be given the honour,” a BBC spokesperson said.
Ahead of the awards, the BBC also released a list of the top 10 performances in 2017.
The top five were the Academy Award winners for Best Actor for the film The Revenant, which won the best cinematography award, and actress and director Lena Headey for her role in the BBC1 drama House.
She also won the outstanding supporting actress award for her performance in The Big Short.
In the acting category, the list included a record-breaking 11 winners, with Amy Adams, Helen Mirren, Benedict Cumberbatch, Julianne Moore and Julianne Hough all topping the list.
Hugh Jackman also took home the award in his first film appearance since his Oscar-winning performance as Sherlock Holmes in The Imitation Game.
In the comedy category, a total of three nominees were announced, with Sam Rockwell, John Cleese and Tim Meadows also in line to take home the comedy award.
A total of six nominations were also announced for the acting and supporting actor categories.
This includes eight nominations in the comedy and six in the acting categories.
A further five nominations in each category were announced for a total 13 nominations.
A total 1,937 nominations were submitted for the Best Actor category, with a total total of 5,938 nominations for the supporting actor category.
There were also three nominations for best supporting actress, with Meryl Streep, Mandy Moore and Cate Blanchett both nominated for their roles in the Oscar-nominated film Beasts of No Nation.
The acting category was dominated by the Academy Awards winners, as the list was dominated primarily by the actors who had a significant impact on the success of their careers, such as Leonardo DiCaprio, Kevin Hart and Will Smith.
The nominations were handed out on January 8 and 9, but nominations for supporting actor, acting and comedy categories were not announced until January 10.
While there was a strong showing from the actors in each of the acting areas, the supporting actress category was also dominated by female actors, with actresses Amy Adams and Emma Thompson all nominated.
In total, the acting nominations were followed by acting, comedy and supporting actress.
The best picture nominees were the film Titanic and The Great Gatsby, followed by The Theory of Everything, Birdman, Spotlight and The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo.
The comedy category was led by The Big Sick and Blackfish, while the acting nominees were Steve Carell, Tim Robbins, Michael Moore, Jamie Foxxx and Billy Bob Thornton.
Barry Jenkins was named acting director for the year, after a string of high-profile awards nominations, including the best picture and best actor awards for his latest film The Martian.
The nominees were also followed by the Best Actress nominations for both Moonlight and Moonlighted, as well as nominations for Amy Adams in the drama The Theory Of Everything and Emma Watson in the role of Sherlock Holmes.
Elsewhere in the film industry, Oscar-winner Kate Winslet won Best Actress in a Supporting Role for her work in Moonlight, and she won Best Supporting Actress in her first film since her breakout performance as Hermione Granger in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2.
Also up for consideration for the best supporting actor award were Matthew McConaughey, Will Smith, Eddie Redmayne, Meryl Stewart, Daniel Craig, Daniel Radcliffe, Daniel Kaluuya and Michael Fassbender.
The nominated actors for the comedy awards were Jon Hamm, Paul Rudd, Matt Damon, James Franco, Kevin Kline, Emma Stone and Woody Harrelson.
