Acad gets the vote out

Nominee ballots are in the mail

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences has mailed out nomination ballots to 5,808 voting members, with the largest group of ballots going out Monday to California voters.

Prior to the mailing, the PricewaterhouseCoopers staff verifies that there are no duplicate copies sent out and that no voting member is overlooked. Though all ballots are counted and sorted, each one is given a number to guarantee it is sent to the correct Academy voter.

Completed ballots are due back to the PricewaterhouseCoopers office by 5 p.m. on Jan. 15. No ballot received thereafter will be counted.

Separately, the Acad issued a reminder that midnight Friday is the final deadline for pics to begin their necessary seven-day run in L.A. County in order to be eligible for consideration for the 2005 kudofest.

For a film to qualify, producers must have submitted the official screen credits form to the Academy by Dec. 1. As a result, there will be no surprise entries in the Oscar race at this point, even though a number of films began or will begin their one-week runs after that cutoff date.

Oscar noms will be announced at 5:30 a.m. Jan. 25 at the Academy’s Samuel Goldwyn Theater in Beverly Hills.

The Academy Awards will be presented Feb. 27 at the Kodak Theater in Hollywood and broadcast on ABC.
