The competition, which has been named 'The 29th Annual Independent Critics List 2018', had been founded by British film critic TC Candler in the year 1990.

Previous award winners include the likes of Michelle Pfeiffer, Marion Cottilard and Jourdan Dunn. The Award show's Instagram handle and YouTube channel boast of 750 million likes, and 1.4 million followers and subscribers.

This year, the show's creators have also introduced a 'Most Handsome Faces' competition and also an Asian-specific contest. The site wrote, "Unlike most other annual beauty rankings, the 100 Most Beautiful Faces List is not a popularity contest and it is definitely not country specific. The list attempts to inform and broaden public opinion, instead of reflecting it."
