Oscar credits, music forms due

5 p.m. Thursday deadline looms for Academy consideration

Official screen credits and music submission forms for 84th annual Academy Awards consideration are due Thursday at 5 p.m.

For a feature film to be considered for the Oscars, the distributor or producer must file a screen credits form by the deadline. If a feature film is released in Los Angeles County in 2011 and the form is not submitted by the deadline, the film will be ineligible for Academy Awards in any year.

Screen credits forms are available online only, at http://aiwosc.oscars.org/aiwosc/. Information about submission and feature film eligibility can be obtained by contacting Credits Coordinator Howard Loberfeld at (310) 247-3000, ext. 1113, or via e-mail at hloberfeld@oscars.org.

For an achievement to be considered in the original score or original song category, the principal music writer(s) for a feature film must submit an official music submission form and other materials by 5 p.m.

To request music submission materials, contact Dave Hanson at (310) 247-3000, ext. 1151, or via e-mail at dhanson@oscars.org.

While the credits submission deadline is Dec. 1, feature films have until midnight, Dec. 31, to open in a commercial motion picture theater in Los Angeles County and begin a minimum run of seven consecutive days to be eligible for 2011 Oscar consideration.

Entries in the foreign language, animated feature, documentary, and short film categories are subject to special rules and must meet other qualifying criteria. The entry deadlines in these categories have already passed.

Complete 84th Academy Awards rules are available at http://www.oscars.org/rules/.
