The Academy of Motion Pictures, Arts and Sciences announced more flexible opportunities regarding screening of nominated shorts to its members.

 According to th updated rules version, in the Animated Short Film and Live Action Short Film categories, members will still have to see all the nominated films before casting their final ballots, but viewing the films on screeners will now be an option for satisfying this requirement.

Films that are shown during their theatrical run in a non-standard format, such as IMAX, will have to be submitted to the Academy in a standard theatrical aspect ratio and in a format currently accepted for Academy exhibition to remain eligible. Producers may provide additional screenings of their films in non-standard formats, but members’ attendance at such screenings will not be required for voting purposes.

Let's hope that the update, more flexible screening version (instead of exclusively producer screenings) will actually result to all the Academy Member viewing the whole films.

Have a look at the 10 short animated films shortlisted for an Oscar.

Academy Award nominations will be announced on January 24, 2012, the 85th Academy Award ceremony will take place on Sunday, February 26, at the Kodak Theatre at Hollywood & Highland Center®.
