Oscar Nomination Ballots Mailed Monday to 5,755 Academy Members
The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences on Monday mailed Oscar nomination ballots to the group's 5,755 voting members.
Completed ballots must be returned to PricewaterhouseCoopers by 5 p.m. PT on Jan. 14. Ballots received after the deadline will not be counted.
AMPAS said that PricewaterhouseCoopers has already taken steps to ensure that no duplicate ballots were mailed out and that none was missing. In addition, the ballots are numbers to guarantee each one is sent to the correct voter.
The 83rd Academy Awards nominations will be announced at 5:30 a.m. PT on Jan. 25 at the academy's Samuel Goldwyn Theater. The awards show will air live Feb. 27 on ABC from the Kodak Theatre at Hollywood & Highland.
