Jan 29, 2003 by Ian Evans

If you’re a member of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences and you didn’t get your nominations ballot in today by 5pm, we’ve got some bad news for you:

You missed the deadline.

Voting members of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences had to return their completed Oscar® nomination ballots to PricewaterhouseCoopers by 5 p.m. today. Ballots received after the 5 p.m. deadline were ineligible.

Using the preferential voting system, the ballots will be tabulated under the direction of PricewaterhouseCoopers partners Greg Garrison and Rick Rosas.

All eligible members of the Academy may cast their vote in the Best Picture category, while Academy members in 12 branches will nominate achievements in up to 22 categories. Films submitted in the Animated Feature and Foreign Language Film categories are screened and selected by special voting groups of Academy members.

The 75th Academy Award® nominations will be announced at the Academy’s Samuel Goldwyn Theater on Tuesday, February 11. Join Digital Hit on the 11th for the nominations and stick with us for all your Oscar® coverage.
