Oscar Stat­uette, Acad­emy Awards

Want to be in the run­ning for best ani­mated film this year? The Acad­emy of Motion Pic­ture Arts & Sci­ence– the peo­ple behind the Oscars– have set a dead­line for when your film needs to be to them.… and the dead­line is just around the corner.

You must sub­mit your film and appli­ca­tion to the Acad­emy by next week– Novem­ber 1st to be exact– to be in con­sid­er­a­tion for the best ani­mated film. The announce­ment comes on the heels of a more sweep­ing announce­ment from the Screen Actors Guild Awards. The SAG awards have set their own dead­line of this Thurs­day (Octo­ber 25) for nom­i­na­tions for con­sid­er­a­tion — across all cat­e­gories — ahead of its own awards cer­e­mony in January.

What do you need to be con­sid­ered for the Oscar? It must be “a motion pic­ture with a run­ning time of more than 40 min­utes, in which move­ment and char­ac­ters’ per­for­mances are cre­ated using a frame-by-frame tech­nique.” Addi­tion­ally, a sig­nif­i­cant num­ber of the major char­ac­ters must be ani­mated, and ani­ma­tion must fig­ure in no less than 75 per­cent of the picture’s run­ning time. Sorry, no motion cap­ture films are eli­gi­ble. Full rules and sub­mis­sion pack­ets are avail­able here.

The Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards will be held on Jan­u­ary 27, 2013.

The 85th Acad­emy Awards nom­i­na­tions will be announced on Jan­u­ary 10. “Fam­ily Guy” artist Seth Mac­Far­lane set to host the 2013 awards cer­e­mony, which will air on Feb­ru­ary 24.

Oh, and just so you know, a max­i­mum of two stat­uettes will be awarded to win­ners in this category.
