Final Oscar Ballots Due Today

If Oscar voters haven’t made their decisions by now, it’s almost too late. Their ballots are due at the end of the business day today.

Since on-line voting is not allowed, the paper ballots have to arrive at the academy’s accountants’ office at 5 P.M. today, Los Angeles time.

On the ballots are nominees in 19 awards categories. Separate ballots for five other categories — documentary feature, documentary short subject, foreign language film, animated short film and live action short film — were distributed after verification that those movies were seen at special screenings.

The accountants start counting all the votes today.

The Oscars will be given out this Sunday at the Kodak Theatre in Hollywood.
