  • Oscar organisers lay down new rules 'to stop wooing voters'

    Oscars organisers have laid down new rules which will ban voters from attending parties organised by film companies after nominations are announced on 24th January, ahead of the Academy Awards, to discourage wooing voters.

    Academy president Tom Sherak has said that the rules will help in “protecting the integrity of the awards process” and to preserve “the distiction of the Oscars”.

    The voters will be allowed to attend screenings by actors and will be permitted to watch copies of eligible films in their own homes.

    “Above all, we want Academy members to see movies as they were meant to be seen, in a theatrical setting,” the BBC quoted him as saying.

    The Academy also announced that a long-standing ban on negative campaigning against films and actors had been extended to social networking sites such as Facebook and Twitter, and members could be expelled from the organisation if they violated this rule more than once.
