How to use "Academy award" in context?

The Academy Awards are awarded annually to the best films of the year. The Academy Awards are not restricted to any particular genre or style, and have been awarded to a wide range of films, both popular and obscure, including crime thrillers, family dramas, and historical epics.

The first Academy Awards were given in 1929, and were sponsored by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences. The awards were first given to individual films, and did not incorporate a category for Best Picture. From 1941 to 1967, the Best Picture Oscar was presented together with the other Oscars at a single ceremony.
