LOS ANGELES — Thursday, November 15th is the deadline to submit Oscars Submission Forms in the general entry categories to the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences for 91st Academy Awards consideration. Films will not be accepted for consideration after the deadline.
For a feature film to be considered for the 2018 Awards, the film’s distributor or producer must upload via Dropbox a scanned, signed copy of the OSF and legal billing (complete on-screen credits) or deliver a signed OSF and the film’s legal billing to the Academy’s 8949 Wilshire Boulevard office. The deadline for submission by either method is 5pm PST on November 15th.
If a feature film is released in Los Angeles County in 2018 and the completed OSF and billing are not delivered by the deadline, the film will be ineligible for Academy Awards in any year. OSFs are accessible online only, at https://submissions.oscars.org/.
While the credits submission deadline is November 15th, feature films have until midnight, December 31st to open in a qualifying commercial motion picture theater in Los Angeles County and begin a minimum run of seven consecutive days to be eligible for 2018 Awards consideration. Entries in the animated feature, documentary, foreign language and short film categories are subject to special rules and qualifying criteria. The submission deadline in these specialty categories has already passed.
Nominations for the 91st Academy Awards will be announced on Tuesday, January 22nd and the 91st Oscars will be held on Sunday, February 24th.
