How is the winner of the Oscar Award selected?
After winning the award, this question definitely comes in everyone’s mind that how the winners are selected in these awards, how the journey of any nomination to the winner is decided.
Also, how voting help is taken to decide the winner in Oscar Awards. So let us tell you today how the winners are selected at the Oscar Awards.
The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences has more than 10,000 members, divided into 17 branches. Also, all these Academy members have to be involved in the film business in one way or the other.
It is not necessary that only people associated with the industry should be involved in this, managers, executives and professionals of public relations can also be included in this.
Although the nominations are mostly decided by the members of the respective branch, for example the directors nominate the directors, but all members can vote for Best Film.
Once the nominations are decided, all members can vote in any section. Over the years, the Academy has taken steps to diversify its membership.
When does voting happen?
Also, voting takes place a few days before the award function – in 2023, voting began on March 2 and ended on March 7. Also, this process was completed five days before the Oscar Awards.
How are votes cast?
Along with this, the process of voting to choose the winner is done completely online, so that there is no scope for any disturbance in it.
Usually the process is simple for all categories, with the winner getting the most votes, but the process for choosing the Best Film is slightly different.
Voting for Best Film is done in ranks, the nominee who gets more than 50 percent of the votes in the first rank is declared the winner.
If a film does not meet that threshold, the lowest number of first place votes is discarded – the votes of the people who voted that film first will be transferred to their second choice, and so on. until a film achieves majority.
