289 Films Eligible for Oscar Consideration

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences has approved 289 films to be eligible for the 2013 Academy Awards.

The nearly 300 titles are posted on the Oscars website.

Films must show in a commercial theater in Los Angeles county by Dec. 31 for a minimum of seven consecutive days. The eligible titles must run more than 40 minutes — although it seems unlikely a nominee these days would run less than 85 or 90 minutes.

While many of the films on the list were available on VOD before or simultaneously with their theatrical release, such titles generally book a short qualifying run in a theater in order to qualify. Films on the qualifying list that were available for early home viewing include “Drinking Buddies,” “Ain’t Them Bodies Saints,” “Only God Forgives” and “Lovelace.”

Nominations are announced Jan. 16, and the Academy Awards are March 2.
