On Tuesday, January 9th, 2001, the 4253 voting members of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences will receive nomination ballots and a list of the 242 films eligible for Oscar® considerations. From that list, the members will start to decided which films and performances will make the final cut.

To qualify for consideration under the Academy’s rules, a feature-length (over 40 minutes) motion picture must receive public theatrical exhibition by means of 35 or 70mm film, for paid admission in a commercial theater in Los Angeles County between January 1, 2000, and midnight December 31, 2000, for a run of seven consecutive days after an opening prior to midnight of December 31. Films that receive their first public exhibition or distribution in any manner other than theatrical release do not qualify for Academy consideration.

Films submitted in the Documentary, Foreign Language and Short Film categories have different eligibility requirements and are viewed and selected by special voting panels of Academy members.

The nominations will be announced in all categories on February 13. Stick with Digital Hit for all your Academy Awards® coverage.
