Oscar Nomination Ballots Mailed to Academy Voters

-

Nomination ballots for the 84th Academy Awards were mailed to the 5,783 voting members of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences yesterday.

Completed ballots must be returned to PricewaterhouseCoopers by 5 p.m. PST on Jan. 13. Ballots received after the deadline will not be counted.

Nomination and final awards ballots are tabulated by PricewaterhouseCoopers to ensure that all aspects of the balloting process are conducted with fairness and accuracy.

Prior to mailing, the PricewaterhouseCoopers staff administers a thorough verification process to ensure that there are no duplicate ballots and that none are missing. In addition to being counted and sorted, the ballots are numbered to guarantee that each one is addressed to the appropriate academy voter.

The 84th Academy Awards nominations will be announced live Jan. 24 at 5:30 a.m. PT in the Academy’s Samuel Goldwyn Theater. The awards will be presented Feb. 26 at the Kodak Theatre at Hollywood & Highland Center, and televised live on the ABC Television Network.

Vicon Introduces Mobile Mocap at SIGGRAPH

1
Motion capture systems developer Vicon is previewing a futuristic new “Mobile Mocap” technology at SIGGRAPH 2011 in Vancouver. Moving mocap out of the lab and into the field, Vicon's Mobile Mocap system taps several new technologies, many years in the making. At the heart of Mobile Mocap is a very small lipstick-sized camera that enables less obtrusive, more accurate facial animation data. The new cameras capture 720p (1280X720) footage at 60 frames per second. In addition, a powerful processing unit synchronizes, stores, and wirelessly transmits the data, all in a tiny wearable design.
