This is a list of groups, organizations and festivals that award prizes to motion pictures.
Many awards are simply called the best picture (or actor or director) as chosen by the group presenting the wards. Where applicable, however, the name of the award is given -- for example, the Oscar.
Awards have been divided into three major categories: critics' awards, voted on (usually annually) by a group of critics; festival awards, awards presented to the best film shown in a particular film festival; and industry awards, which are selected by professionals working in some branch of the movie industry.
