Fifty Oscars, two statuettes that belonged to Hollywood legends, and one statuette for the public to hold will be on display at "Meet the Oscars, New York" at Times Square Studios in New York City beginning on Monday, February 12, at noon. The exhibition will remain open through Oscar® Sunday, February 25. "Meet the Oscars, New York" will be open daily from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m.

All voting members are eligible to select the Best Picture nominees. Ballots were mailed to 5,830 voting members in late December and were returned directly to PricewaterhouseCoopers, the international accounting firm, for tabulation. Read more about voting procedures.

Official screenings for members of all pictures receiving nominations will begin this weekend at the Samuel Goldwyn Theater. Screenings in some categories also will be held in Hollywood, at the Academy’s Linwood Dunn Theater, as well as in London, New York and San Francisco.
