Atlanta is undoubtedly the Hollywood of the South. Since 1972, over 800 film and television projects have been filmed or produced in Georgia. Recently, there has been a huge upswing of filmmakers wanting to take advantage of the tax credits provided to film-makers. Although none of the films nominated for an actual Oscar were filmed in Atlanta, we aren't letting that stop us from awarding one of these Atlanta films a Clickscape Oscar.
