About the Oscar for Best Actor The Academy Award for Best Actor was first awarded at the 1st Academy Awards ceremony, held in 1929.

Currently, nominees are determined by preferential voting within the actors branch of AMPAS; winners are selected by a majority vote from the entire eligible voting members of the Academy.

He has received numerous acting awards and nominations, including the 2006 BAFTA Awards Rising Star, three Golden Globe Awards' nominations, and the 2008 Laurence Olivier Award for Best Actor for his performance in Othello. About the movie 12 Years a Slave is a 2013 British-American epic historical drama film and an adaptation of the eponymous 1853 autobiography by Solomon Northup, a New York State-born free negro who was kidnapped in Washington, D.C. in 1841 and sold into slavery. He worked on plantations in the state of Louisiana for 12 years before his release. The first scholarly edition of Northup's memoir, co-edited by Sue Eakin and Joseph Logsdon in 1968, carefully retraced and validated his account, finding it to be remarkably accurate. Contract Rules
