Sci-tech Oscar bids hit deadline

71st Academy Awards entries due August 17th

Filmmakers seeking Oscars next March for scientific and technical achievements have until Monday to submit entries for consideration in the 71st Academy Awards.

Calls for entries were mailed in June to production companies, members of the film-related scientific community and more than 700 past winners.

Richard Miller, Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences awards administration director, explained that any device, method, formula, discovery or invention of special and outstanding value may be considered “if it has proven its exceptional merit through successful use in the motion picture industry.”

Technical advances brought to the attention of the Scientific and Technical Awards Committee will be evaluated by groups of film industry engineers, scientists and craftspersons before being recommended to the Academy’s board of governors for consideration.

Questions about awards requirements may be addressed to Miller by phone at (310) 247-3000 or by fax at (310) 859-9619.

Academy Award nominations will be announced Feb. 9. Oscars will be presented March 21 at the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion.
