In creating the new award, the COPSS recognizes the increasingly important role that early career statistical scientists are playing in shaping the future of the discipline. The award is designed both to call attention to the efforts of these individuals and to provide a mechanism for them to share their vision for the field with each other and the statistical community. The selection criteria for the award are intentionally broad and designed to highlight contributions in areas not traditionally recognized by other early career awards in the statistical sciences.
Nominations and EligibilityThe award is open to all junior members of the international statistical community. An eligiblecandidate will have received a terminal statistically-related degree up to 10 years prior to the awardyear.

The spread of contenders for this year's most prestigious accolades looks different than those at the last couple of Oscars ceremonies. Where projects backed by streaming services took many of the highest honors in 2022, the tides turned in 2023 to recognize a number of larger-than-life movies that performed well at the box office and pulled audiences back to theaters. They are accompanied by hard-hitting dramas and semi-nonfiction films, and, as usual, the prize in several leading Oscars categories could be anyone's game. Here is what to expect from the award ceremony's top contests.
Arguably the most coveted award of the night, the Oscar for best picture will be chosen from a competitive pool of 10 nominees. This year's entrants span a broad range of genres, styles and subject matters, with popcorn picks like "Top Gun: Maverick" up against multiple critically acclaimed films, many of which are darker in tone, even the satires.
Each film has already won recognition this awards season, with "Everything Everywhere All At Once," "Tár," "The Banshees of Inisherin" and "The Fabelmans" taking top spots at the Critics Choice Awards, the Screen Actors Guild Awards and the Golden Globes, potentially foreshadowing how they will fare at the Oscars.
Riseborough's nod drew public backlash since neither Viola Davis nor Danielle Deadwyler were nominated, as anticipated, for their roles in "The Woman King" and "Till," despite both reaping acclaim in the pre-Oscars awards circuit. Omitting Davis and Deadwyler meant that no Black women would contend for this year's best actress prize, and the allegations of corruption that ensued prompted the Academy to open an investigation into Riseborough's nomination and whether it was fair. Her nomination was not revoked after the probe.
Both Blanchett and Yeoh have already won honors at major award shows this season, with Blanchett winning at the Golden Globes, the Critics Choice Awards and the BAFTAs, and Yeoh at the Golden Globes and the SAG Awards. The latter star's chances of winning the Oscar for best actress are bolstered by the momentum of her film, which is unrivaled.
Who wins the best actor prize at this year's Oscars ceremony could prove to be one of the night's biggest surprises, as four of the five nominees have been neck-and-neck for every major acting award given out since the current season began. Austin Butler, for "Elvis"; Brendan Fraser, for "The Whale"; Colin Farrell, for "The Banshees of Inisherin" and Bill Nighy, for "Living," all received nominations at the Critics Choice, Golden Globe and SAG Awards before securing their spots in this Oscars race.
At the outset of award season, Angela Bassett's seemed to have a future Oscar win for best supporting actress all but locked up, after the longtime Hollywood legend won the equivalent title at the Golden Globes and the Critics Choice Awards, plus a nod from the Screen Actors Guild, for her performance in "Black Panther: Wakanda Forever."
Quan received the Golden Globe, the Critics Choice Award and, in a historic win, the SAG Award for his work in the film. Like Yeoh, the fact that Quan is one of the faces of a movie at the helm of the awards circuit can only boost his chances of seeing that sweep through at the Oscars.
CODA is the first film distributed by a streaming service to be awarded the Oscar for Best Picture, proving that streaming platforms like Apple TV+ should be seen as serious competition for traditional media and movie production outlets.
Later this month, Kim will receive a Technical Achievement Award from the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences. Unlike the other Oscars, the Technical Achievement Award is among those that are announced before the main ceremony. Kim and his family will fly out to Los Angeles to receive the award.
We conducted a longitudinal cohort analysis of all actors and actresses nominated for an Academy award in a leading or a supporting role. For each, a control was identified based on age, sex, and co-staring in the same film.
Academy award winning actors and actresses show a positive association between success and survival, suggesting the importance of behavioral, psychological, or other modifiable health factors unrelated to poverty.
Methods for identifying individuals are discussed in detail elsewhere, consistent with prior research, and reviewed here for clarity. Specifically, we identified every performer nominated for an Academy award (Oscar) for acting since inception (1929 to 2020). For each individual we also identified another cast member who performed in the same film as the nominee, with closest-possible matching on age and exact matching on gender. This approach ensured both performers were alive, working, prevailing in casting calls, succeeding in auditions, and winning good movie roles. This approach did not require that either performer survived to film distribution or subsequent recognition. 041b061a72
