The original name is the academy award, however there're several contested stories of how the name Oscar first came about. Betty Davis said she renamed the award after her first husband Harmon Oscar Nelson. Walt Disney had also gone on to thank the academy for his Oscar. The earliest publication where the award was dubbed Oscar was in a 1934 news article in time magazine.

Why do models attend award shows that have nothing to do with them?

They are invited by the organisers to make the event glitzy and to attract the media. The stars go because it is a free night out, they get goody bags and it is exposure and advertising for them. Also a good way to make networks with others in the industry.

Is it possible to reduce the background music when watching a dvd? The music overpowers the voices.

No. The reason they give Academy Awards to SoundMixing, is because some do it great, and some do it bad. Once the dvd is printed, there is nothing you can do about the mix of the sound between background and voices. it's just a bad mix. oh well, the same thing happened to me about a week ago, but as the movie went on, the sound mix either got better, or my ears started to tune into the voices better.
