Film academy rules ineligible documentary series like 'OJ'

The nomination for O.J.: Made in America had caused some consternation among other documentary producers that the 467-minute documentary should have been treated as a TV series rather than one long movie.

LOS ANGELES Multi-part documentary series will be ineligible for the Oscars, organizers said on Friday as part of a new list of awards rules, just a few months after ESPN's serialized "O.J.: Made in America" won the Oscar for best feature documentary. But it nearly certainly would attract the scrutiny of the doc branch's executive committee which, I'm told by sources close to the Academy, would, per the new rule, seek to determine the principal format for which the doc was created.

For a fighter like Jones who likely earns more than $1 million on fight night, they would fall in the highest income tax bracket. He has good wrestling, but he needs to set it up with punches. "[The New York area] is where he's from, I get it", Cormier said.

Under the rule change announced Friday, such productions "are not eligible for awards consideration", with the executive committee of the Academy's Documentary Branch having final say on a production's eligibility.

In the run-up to the Oscar nomination, O.J.: Made in America was screened at several film festivals and was treated as a film. Most viewers, however, saw it as a five-part series on ESPN.

For the first time, nominations voting in the Animated Feature Film category will be opened up to the entire eligible voting membership.

From the inception of the best animated feature category ahead of the 2002 Oscars through the Oscars held earlier this year, best animated feature nominations were determined by a committee comprised of roughly an equal number of Academy members from within and outside of the short films and feature animation branch, all invited to participate by the Academy.

HDFC Securities said, "Indian equity markets are likely to open on a flat to negative note following Asian cues". The Nikkei Composite Purchasing Managers' Index rose to 52.3 in March from 50.7 in February.

In the best picture category, meanwhile, the Academy will now allow "a bona fide team of not more than two people" to be considered as a single producer. I guess visiting rights would have to be worked out among that mythical trio should they win one day. Now, committee members for the category-which originated in 2002, when it gave its first award to Shrek-will come from all branches of the Academy, without regard for their animation credentials.
