Awards Season is loaded with the biggest events of the entertainment year. It’s a chance to showcase some of the industry’s most brilliant ideas, projects, personalities and performances.

Across the world, the best of music and film is celebrated at extravagant awards ceremonies. These range from the well-known Oscars, Grammy’s and Golden Globes in the US to the BRITs and the BAFTAs in the UK.

Getty Images has some of the strongest entertainment relationships in the business. We are in house for the Grammys, SAGS, Globes and many more as well as the exclusive party photographers for events like the Vanity Fair Oscar Party and the Elton John Oscar Party.

Our picture editors and support staff are unparalleled in the business.  Photos will come to our editors within moments of being shot via our top of the line technology, and will be sent to the world’s media in virtually real time.

This season, Getty Images will capture every moment of the events including candid backstage shots, alternative views and portraits in our backstage studios. Our robotic camera will also create content from angles never seen before.

As always, the world will be waiting to see what the celebrities will be wearing on the red carpet. Fashion is such an important part of Awards Season - everyone wants to know who is wearing what.

Let’s take a look back at some of the most memorable events and images of 2013.
