Oscars 2024: Academy Creates a New Branch–Casting

New Oscar for Achievement in Casting

The first new Oscar to be introduced since best animated feature, more than two decades ago, will be presented for the first time in 2026.


The Academy of Motion Pictures Art and Sciences has announced that it will soon begin annually presenting an Oscar recognizing achievement in casting.

The award, which will first be presented in 2026, will be the first new Oscar introduced since the organization began presenting best animated feature in 2002, after announcing its creation in 2001.

My Oscar Book:

It has not yet been confirmed that the casting Oscar will be presented on the telecast, but it is hard to imagine that it would not be.) Twenty-three awards are currently handed out on the air, although the average viewer tends to care about only four or five.
