Why the Hoscars?

The film industry has utilized the services of thousands of horses throughout the years. Many movies would not be the same without a steady steed supporting the main actor. Imagine Roy Rogers without Trigger, Zorro without Tornado, Geralt without Roach. Movies like the Black Stallion, Seabiscuit, and Warhorse star or co-star the horse! is ready to recognize these amazing animals for the skills they possess and bring to the big screen!

Accidental Inspiration.

The inspiration came from an Instagram post that Henry Cavill made. Henry asked, “Why don’t they have an Oscar for best supporting horse?” Great question Henry! The time has come to give credit where credit is due! (There used to be a PATSY Award for best animal actor, but the PATSY Award was discontinued in the 80’s.)

How it Works!

The Hoscars 2020 will consist of two categories: (names may change slightly)

Hoscar Star of the Past and Hoscar Star of the Present.


A film industry equid (horse, mule, donkey, zebra, zorse) will be nominated on the OFFICIAL 2020 Hoscars Nomination Form (above). Anyone can nominate, but once a horse has been nominated (will be added to the nominations page) please do not nominate again.
