Academy Awards are nicknamed "Oscars", which is also the nickname of the statuette (the name is said to have been born when Margaret Herrick[?] saw the statuette on a table and said: "It looks just like my uncle Oscar!").
The awards were first given at a banquet in the Blossom Room of the Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel on May 16, 1929 but there was little suspense since the winners of the awards had already been announced three months earlier on February 18.

 The Epoch Times | Jan Kaczmarek: Anti-Communist Protester, Now Oscar Winner
Born in 1953 in Konin, Poland, he originally educated himself in Law and Politics and was headed for a career as a diplomat, but big societal changes and calls for freedom of expression drew his attention from his studies in the early 1980’s.
Williams has already five Oscar Academy Awards on his bookshelf (and has been nominated an incredible 43 times), so he probably will not feel too sad losing this one to Kaczmarek.
Kaczmarek was also nominated for the 2005 Golden Globe award for Original score, but there Howard Shore got the award for his work with the music in Martin Scorsese’s The Aviator.

He is specially a master in scenes of action on which he lays music with fresh movement, full of rhythm and harmonic insight, generally with the best orchestras and musicians in the place.
