A type of gathering where awards are given out is an awards ceremony. A government agency, a group, a school, a trade association, or even a firm that specialized in award ceremonies could host the event. A master of ceremonies typically introduces award recipients, addresses the audience, entertains attendees, and keeps the ceremony moving. Annual competitions for tragedy and comedy were held in Ancient Greece, with the wealthier citizens funding them. Finest play, best production, and best actor were among the honors bestowed. There were two reward ceremonies in the early Olympic Games. The judges presented palm branches to the champions of each event. The event winners were revealed and crowned with olive garlands on the final day of the games. No medals were given out to the runners-up because they were regarded inconsequential, and only the winner was announced. In order to be recognized as winners, athletes would frequently risk large fines and pay judges. From humble beginnings, the main American media awards have grown into big prime-time broadcast events. Three months after the winners were announced, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences held its first awards ceremony at the Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel in 1929. In a 15-minute ceremony, the Oscar statuettes for best film, best actress, and best actor were presented. The Hollywood Foreign Correspondents Association, which consisted of eight journalists, founded the Golden Globe Awards in 1944. They intended to deliver awards for best picture, best actress, and best actor at a luncheon at 20th Century Fox. In 1947, the Waldorf Astoria in New York hosted the first Tony Awards ceremony for theatrical plays and musicals. The first Emmy Awards were presented at the Hollywood Athletic Club in 1949 by the Academy of Television Arts and Sciences. The National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences presented the first Grammy Awards in 1958, with Volare winning Best Single. In 1988, the first Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Awards aired. Since its beginning in 2014, the Game Awards, a video game industry awards presentation, has been livestreamed on YouTube and Twitch every year.
