Dr. Mun­roe was a Ba­hamian Evan­gel­i­cal Christian evan­ge­list and or­dained Pen­te­costal min­is­ter who founded and led the Ba­hamas Faith Min­istries In­ter­na­tional (BFMI) and Myles Mun­roe In­ter­na­tional (MMI).

The stars all align in their flashy suits and sparkly dresses hop­ing to re­ceive a trophy for their work over the past year dur­ing what is known as “Awards Sea­son”. But, when did this all start? And who can re­ally re­mem­ber what tal­ent is nom­i­nated at which award show? No fear! Your guide to award sea­son and a lit­tle his­tory is here!

From Novem­ber to Fe­bru­ary, Hol­ly­wood pauses to rec­og­nize the great­est ac­tors, writ­ers, pro­duc­ers, and de­sign­ers in the game. It all kicks off with the Gotham Awards held in New York City to honor in­de­pen­dent film­mak­ers. Smaller cer­e­monies, like this one, have a deep his­tory with very niche au­di­ences that are cap­ti­vated by huge tal­ent. The more well known shows re­ally start in the be­gin­ning of the new year. View­ers gather around the TV to see who the Hol­ly­wood For­eign Press As­so­ci­a­tion will deem as the greats of film and tele­vi­sion dur­ing the Golden Globes. The celebs hit the red car­pet for the first time and re­porters get to start spec­u­lat­ing who will be the “It” de­signer and trend­set­ter for the next sev­eral weeks.

Those who failed in the fash­ion depart­ment dur­ing the Golden Globes have a chance to re­deem them­selves dur­ing cer­e­monies like The Writ­ers, Pro­duc­ers, and Screen Ac­tors Guilds Awards. Th­ese cer­e­monies honor all cat­e­gories from ra­dio to small films to hit tele­vi­sion pro­grams.

The ex­cite­ment and sus­pense all cul­mi­nates at the most pres­ti­gious cer­e­mony of them all, “The Academy Awards.” Dat­ing back to 1929, The Academy Awards hon­ored those in the world of cin­e­matog­ra­phy and is the old­est award show of its kind. You may know it sim­ply as “The Os­cars” which is ac­tu­ally a nick­name for the gold statue given to the win­ners of the night. Greats like Halle Berry, Den­zel Wash­ing­ton, Diane Keaton, and Lupita Ny­ong’o all have re­ceived this great honor.

Whether it’s the gowns, the tuxe­dos, the ac­cep­tance speeches, the writ­ers, the pro­duc­ers, the direc­tors, the ac­tors, or the hosts, there is so much to get ex­cited about dur­ing awards sea­son! Look out for your fa­vorite stars and see what awards they bring home this year! DT
