We’re at the last leg of the award season race, with the Oscars wrapping things up on Feb 24.

Unfortunately, there’s no word yet on where the Oscars will be shown in Malaysia (keep checking here for updates).

Here are four other award shows to look forward to:

The 33rd Anugerah Juara Lagu

The annual song competition, which honours composers and lyricists, sees 12 songs vying for the top prize – Best Song.

What’s interesting this year is seasoned singers who have been absent from the industry are making a comeback like Siti Sarah and Akademi Fantasia’s Kaer and Amylea.

Stay tuned to find out how your favourite tunes will fare.

Anugerah Juara Lagu airs live Feb 3 at 9pm on TV3.

The 61st Grammy Awards

It’s anyone’s guess who will take home the coveted album of the year trophy this year.

Works by popular acts like Drake and Post Malone may have garnered commercial success but that doesn’t mean they’ve won over Grammy voters’ hearts. Lesser known artistes like H.E.R. have just as much a chance.

We’re also looking forward to watching Red Hot Chili Peppers, Post Malone, Camila Cabello and more perform.

The 61st Grammy Awards airs live Feb 11 at 9am, encore at 8pm, on Foxlife (Astro Ch 711).

The 72nd British Academy Film Awards

This British film award is open to films from all countries except for two categories – Outstanding British Film and Outstanding Debut by a British Writer, Director or Producer – which honours British films and filmmakers only.

This year, BlacKkKlansman, The Favourite, Green Book, Roma and A Star Is Born are up for Best Film. Could Green Book and Roma – who took home Best Motion Picture (Musical or Comedy) and Best Foreign Language Film respectively at the recent Golden Globes – score another victory here?

The 72nd British Academy Film Awards airs Feb 11 at 5.30pm on Foxlife (Astro Ch 711).

The Brit Awards 2019

Female artistes are leading the way at this year’s Brit Awards, with Anne-Marie, Dua Lipa and Jess Glynne earning four nominations each.

The award, which celebrates the best of British music, will feature performances by Little Mix, The 1975, Calvin Harris and more.

The Brit Awards 2019 airs Feb 21 at 7.30pm on Foxlife (Astro Ch 711).
