Academy Extending Deadline For Members to Request Paper Ballots for Oscar Voting

Posted by Karen Benardello On November - 29 - 2012 0 Comment

The Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences has extended the deadline for members to request a paper ballot for the 85th Academy Awards by two weeks. The deadline was pushed from Friday, November 30 to Friday, December 14. The extension was put into place to ensure all Academy members fully understand all the voting options that are available to them this year.

Ric Robertson, the Academy’s COO, said “In past years, once our members paid their dues, they would automatically be sent a ballot at the appropriate time. With the introduction of electronic voting this year, members must either register to vote electronically or request a paper ballot. We’re extending the deadline for requesting paper ballots to make completely sure that no member who prefers this method misses the boat.”

The majority of Academy members have already registered to vote online. Those who haven’t yet registered may do so through Wednesday, January 2, 2013. The voting period for nominations runs between Monday, December 17 and Thursday, January 3. Since this is the first year that members can vote electronically, voting resources will be available, including assisted voting stations in L.A., New York and London.

The nominations for the 85th Academy Awards will be announced on Thursday, January 10, 2013 at 5:30 am PT in the Academy’s Samuel Goldwyn Theater. The Oscar ceremony will be presented on Sunday, February 24, 2013 at the Dolby Theatre at Hollywood & Highland Center, and will be televised live on ABC.
