Brazilian Acad skeds August kudos

World Brief

The Brazilian Film Academy will hold its annual prize ceremony Aug. 31 in Rio’s downtown Odeon landmark theater.

Academy will announce the five nominees for each of the 20 categories in early August after some 200 members select titles via the Internet. Winners will be chosen in August via a second Web vote. PricewaterhouseCoopers will audit voting.

The 27 features that opened in 2003, including Hector Babenco’s prison blockbuster “Carandiru,” are eligible.

This year’s ceremony was in danger due to the lack of a sponsor. But local airline TAM has agreed to pay 1.6 million reals ($530,000) to fund the kudos through 2007.
