Friday, November 15, is the deadline to submit Oscars Submission Forms (OSF) in the general entry categories to the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences for 92nd Academy Awards consideration. According to the Academy, films will not be accepted for consideration after the deadline.
For a feature film to be considered for the 2019 Awards, the film’s distributor or producer must upload via the submission website 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 5 p.m. PT on November 15. If a feature film is released in Los Angeles County in 2019 and the completed OSF and billing are not delivered by the deadline, the film will be ineligible for Academy Awards in any year. Complete 92nd Academy Awards rules can be found here.
While the credits submission deadline is November 15, feature films have until December 31 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 2019 Awards consideration.
Entries in the animated feature, documentary, international feature 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 92nd Academy Awards will be announced on Monday, January 13, 2020.
The 92nd Oscars will be held on Sunday, February 9, 2020, at the Dolby Theatre at Hollywood & Highland Center in Hollywood, and will be televised live on the ABC Television Network. The Oscars also will be televised live in more than 225 countries and territories worldwide.
