Oscar deadline looms on Dec. 1

Films not submitted will not be included on List

For a film to be considered for the 72nd annual Academy Awards, the official screen credit form must be received by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences by 5 p.m. Wednesday.

If Oscar hopefuls miss the deadline, their feature films’ titles won’t be included in the Academy’s cheat sheet for voters, the “Reminder List of Eligible Releases.” Votes will not be counted for pics not included on the “Reminder List.”

Although the credit form is due Wednesday, producers and distributors have until midnight on Dec. 31 to open their films in Los Angeles County (with at least a consecutive seven-day run) for Oscar eligibility.

Entries in the foreign-language, docu and short categories fall under different qualifying criteria; these deadlines do not apply to them.

For more Oscar info or details on receiving credit forms, contact the Academy at (310) 247-3000, ext. 113.

Oscar noms will be announced Feb. 15 at the Academy. The awards show will be broadcast on ABC from the Shrine Auditorium on March 26.
