Oscar winning film Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon Why are they so important?
It can really help a film's success or an actor's career if they win an Oscar.

An actor often gets offered lots more work and better films once they've won an Oscar, as people take them more seriously.

And "arty" films which haven't done that well at the box office suddenly get really popular once they've won an Oscar.
