The Academy COO, Ric Robertson said, “By extending the voting deadline we are providing every opportunity available to make the transition to online balloting as smooth as possible,”.  He added ,“We’re grateful to our global membership for joining us in this process.”

This is the first year the Academy is providing its membership the opportunity to vote online. Several voting resources are available to members, including assisted voting stations in Los Angeles, New York andLondon, and a 24-hour support call center.
The nominations and final Awards ballots will be tabulated and verified by PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC) to ensure that all aspects of the balloting process are accurate and secure. In the majority of the categories, PwC will tabulate the ballots using the preferential voting system.

The 85th Academy Awards® nominations will be announced live in the Academy’s Samuel Goldwyn Theater on Thursday, January 10, 2013, at 5:30 a.m. PT.
Academy Awards for outstanding film achievements of 2012 will be presented on Oscar Sunday, February 24, 2013, at the Dolby Theatre™ at Hollywood & Highland Center®, and televised live on the ABC Television Network. The Oscar presentation also will be televised live in more than 225 countries worldwide.
