Voting members of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences must return their completed Oscar nomination ballots to Pricewaterhouse-Coopers no later than 5 p.m. on Saturday, January 21.
Ballots received after that deadline will not be counted.
All eligible members of the Academy may vote in the Best Picture category, while Academy members in 13 groups will nominate achievements in an additional 21 categories. Films submitted in the Animated Feature Film and Foreign Language Film categories are screened and selected by special voting committees of Academy members.
PricewaterhouseCoopers will tabulate the ballots using the preferential voting system.
