The Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences’ 5,777 voting members can expect nomination ballots to arrive by mail this week. Ballots were mailed Monday, and voters will have until 5 p.m. PST on Jan. 23 return their selections to PricewaterhouseCoopers.
Each ballot is numbered and verified before it is mailed to ensure its integrity, as well as to ensure that it is delivered to the right person.
