    Oscar rule changes: name change for FLF, nom increase in Makeup/Hairstyling

    The Academy’s Board of Governors has approved Oscars rules for the 92nd Academy Awards. Notable changes and updates are as follows:

    In the Animated Feature category, the theatrical release of eight eligible animated features in the calendar year is no longer required for the awards category to be activated. In addition, nominations voting will be automatically open to all active members of the Short Films and Feature Animation Branch. Other active voting members of the Academy must opt-in to participate in the nominations round.

    The Foreign Language Film category name has been changed to International Feature Film.

    “We have noted that the reference to ‘Foreign’ is outdated within the global filmmaking community,” commented Larry Karaszewski and Diane Weyermann, co-chairs of the International Feature Film Committee. “We believe that International Feature Film better represents this category, and promotes a positive and inclusive view of filmmaking, and the art of film as a universal experience.”

    The category name change does not change any existing category rules, the submission process, or eligibility requirements. An international feature film is defined as a feature-length motion picture produced outside the United States of America with a predominantly non-English dialogue track. Animated and documentary feature films are permitted. Only one film is accepted from each country as the official selection.

    In addition, the shortlist for the International Feature Film award is expanding to ten films; seven to be chosen by the Phase I International Feature Film Committee, and the additional three to be voted by the International Feature Film Award Executive Committee.

    In the Makeup and Hairstyling category, the number of nominated films is increasing from three to five, and the shortlist is increasing from seven to ten. In addition, the bake-off reels for the films shall not exceed seven minutes in total running time.
    More stuff here. They also make a point to say that nothing is changing regarding streaming films eligibility.

    It would be nice if the director of the IFF winner could be credited with the award. But I’m pleased they’re expanding the shortlist, even by just one title.

    Hooray for Makeup, and for no Popular Film announcement! If only they changed the awful selection/nomination process in Foreign Language International Feature Film, too.

    These are GREAT changes.

    Also of note, the 7-day run holds. No extended time so Netflix can breathe.

    I agree. By completely removing the "Language" aspect of the award/category, it somehow diminishes it. The language represented filmmaking from the rest of the world. Language was what was celebrated, the culture, heritage, etc.

    International Feature means what exactly? Any film OUTSIDE of America? Outside of English?

    British films are International.

    I don't get why this change was necessary.

    BAFTA: Film not in the English language. Appropriate
