Thompson on Hollywood

The Academy has gone through all the submissions for best picture this year and counts two hundred forty-eight feature films that are eligible.

To be eligible for 83rd Academy Awards® consideration, feature films must open in a commercial motion picture theater in Los Angeles County by midnight, December 31, and begin a minimum run of seven consecutive days.

Under Academy rules, a feature-length motion picture must have a running time of more than 40 minutes and must have been exhibited theatrically on 35mm or 70mm film, or in a qualifying digital format.

Feature films that receive their first public exhibition or distribution in any manner other than as a theatrical motion picture release are not eligible for Academy Awards in any category.

The Academy will announce the 83rd Academy Awards nominations live on Tuesday, January 25, 2011, at 5:30 a.m. PT. The big show is Sunday February 27.
