Oscar Updates

"I'm turning 85 next year."

I don't post much of this because I don't want to waste one post on a quick tidbit of information, so here's what's happened since late June.

8/30 - Best Original Song will now have five nominees. Period. And Best Art Direction will now be called Best Production Design. Press release.

8/23 - Also, Craig Zadan and Neil Meron, who've produced Hairspray, The Bucket List (both 2007), and Footloose (2011), will produce the upcoming ceremony. Press release.

7/31 - Howard Koch (executive producer of Source Code) was elected as the Academy's new president. Press release.

7/25 - New campaign rules were announced. But, outside of the studios, who really needs to know those? Press release.

7/17 - The Academy's Board of Governors was joined by newcomers Lisa Cholodenko, Dante Spinotti, Bill Condon, John Knoll, Dick Cook, and Scott Millan. Press release.

6/29 - 176 professionals, such as Jessica Chastain, the Dardenne brothers, and Alberto Iglesias, were invited to join the Academy. Press release.
