This represents a departure from previous regulations where composers had to submit as a collective entity. Notably, recognized bands are now included in the definition of a group. Moreover, the shortlist for this category has been extended from 15 to 20 titles, with the announcement slated for late December ahead of the official nomination voting period in January.

The Academy’s Board of Governors has given the green light to the updated awards rules and campaign regulations for the 97th Oscars ceremony, scheduled for March 2.

 

The Academy has discontinued the recognition of drive-in theaters as qualifying venues for Oscars eligibility, a measure that was temporarily adopted in 2020 during the closure of indoor movie theaters. Instead, films must meet expanded theatrical requirements, including a one-week qualifying run in one of six U.S. markets, now including Dallas-Fort Worth, followed by a seven-day run in 10 of the top 50 U.S. markets within 45 days of the initial release.

Additional qualifying markets include Los Angeles County, New York City, the Bay Area, Chicago, and Atlanta. Films planning expansions after Jan. 10, 2025, must have their release plans verified by the Academy and complete their runs by Jan. 24, 2025.

Moreover, films vying for the Oscars’ top prize must submit the Academy Representation and Inclusion Standards Entry (RAISE) form, meeting at least two of the four standards. Distributors and production teams are also encouraged to apply for the PGA Mark Certification for awards determination by the film’s first qualifying run.

In the screenplay categories, it’s now obligatory to submit the final shooting script for consideration, whether it’s for original or adapted screenplay.

Animated films eligible for the best international feature category can now also compete for the best animated feature if they meet the criteria for both categories. The eligibility period for the international feature category has been adjusted from Nov. 1, 2023, to Sept. 30, 2024.

Changes have been introduced to the Governors Awards as well. The Irving G. Thalberg Memorial Award, honoring a producer’s consistent high-quality work, will now be presented as an Oscar statuette instead of the traditional bust of Thalberg. The most recent recipients of the Thalberg Award were Kathleen Kennedy and Frank Marshall in 2018.

Furthermore, the definition of the Jean Hersholt Humanitarian Award has been refined to recognize individuals in the motion picture industry whose humanitarian efforts have promoted human welfare and addressed inequities. Sundance Institute Directors and Screenwriters Lab founder Michelle Satter received this honor in the past year.

Two awards at the Scientific and Technical Awards have been renamed: the Gordon E. Sawyer Award is now known as the “Scientific and Technical Lifetime Achievement Award,” and the John A. Bonner Award has been renamed the “Scientific and Technical Service Award.”

For consideration at the Academy Awards, a feature film must have a qualifying theatrical release between Jan. 1 and Dec. 31, 2024.

The complete 97th Academy Awards rules and campaign promotional regulations can be found on its website.

Key dates for the upcoming movie season, including the anticipated jukebox musical “Joker: Folie à Deux,” are as follows:
