Ten finalists, five male and five female finalists, will be chosen by by a blue-ribbon panel of casting directors from the prestigious Casting Society of America (CSA). Their audition videos will be posted on Yahoo! Movies, where the general public will be able to vote online for their favorite favorite actor and actress.

The two performers with the most votes from each gender will receive a Hollywood Discovery Award® at the prestigious 14th Annual Hollywood Awards® Gala, on October 25, 2010, at the Beverly Hilton Hotel, in Beverly Hills, California. Round-trip air transportation to Los Angeles, plus hotel accommodations are also provided.

The Hollywood Awards® Gala ceremony itself is one of the most glittering nights in the film calendar and is known for launching the awards season.
