Each year millions of people celebrate outstanding achievement by actors in film, television and theater in over 80 countries around the world.

Now, for the first time we will bring together award winning actors to honor their achievements and recognize their ability to inspire audiences by their performances in movies, television and theatre.

Dramatic Arts goes beyond borders, race, politics and language. Since the ancient Greeks, actors have enlightened, entertained and inspired tens of millions of people.
Using a variety of media platforms – including streaming, social media and broadcast, we’ll celebrate and honor their contributions that enrich us all.
