New Voting Procedures
In 1995, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences created the Visual Effects branch. Since then, a new set of voting procedures has been in effect. This is the current procedure:For more information about the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, visit their web site at http://www.academyawards.com.20 members of the Visual Effects branch of the Academy select 7 films for overall consideration. Then, every member of the Visual Effects branch assembles, and listens to presentations made by representatives of each film. A reel of the shots is shown, and questions are posed to each effects team. The Academy members then vote on their first, second and third choices. The top three vote-getters will become the three final nominees for the Oscar. From these nominees, the full Academy votes for the winner of the Oscar.
