To become a voting member for The Academy, one has to ‘have a distinction in the motion picture arts and sciences’ in their chosen field of work, and also fulfil certain quantitative criteria. Wannabe Academy members can also choose two sponsors to refer them to the Academy committee, who can then take a call.
The members can only belong to one field, say a producer, director or actor, and not multiple branches.
The complicated and long-drawn process to shortlist Oscar nominees involves more than 8000 voting members along with the actors, actresses, directors and other professionals in the moviemaking business.
An accounting firm, PricewaterhouseCoopers is assigned the duty to mail out the ballots and tabulate the votes, a process that takes a total of 1700 hours.
A movie producer/distributor has to submit a form in early December, with the content meeting certain criteria: length is at least 40 minutes, theatre screening is done for at least seven days, and is not being premiered on television.
Once the ballots are sent out, the voting members can pick whatever they want, and then once the voted ballots are sent back, PricewaterhouseCoopers starts the number crunching.

Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.
Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.
This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!
Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.
I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.
Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.
