Final ballots for the 70th annual Academy Awards are to be mailed today to the entire Motion Picture Academy voting membership.
Members will vote for the final awards in 19 primary categories, including best picture, actors and actresses.
Subsequently, ballots will go out for the five award categories of foreign-language film, short documentary, feature-length documentary, animated shorts and live-action shorts.
Most members should receive their ballots in the mail this week. Completed ballots must be received by Price Waterhouse, where they will be tabulated, no later than 5 p.m. on March 17.
