Beverly Hills, CA - Nomination ballots for the 76th Academy Awards were mailed today to the 5,803 voting members of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences.

Completed ballots must be returned to PricewaterhouseCoopers by 5 p.m., Saturday, January 17. Any ballot received after this deadline is ineligible.


All nomination and final award ballots are tabulated by PricewaterhouseCoopers under the direction of partners Greg Garrison and Rick Rosas, who ensure that all aspects of the balloting process are conducted with fairness and accuracy.

"PricewaterhouseCoopers was founded on the principles of accuracy and confidentiality - two of the qualities the Academy expects when it comes to tabulating the Oscar® ballots," said Garrison, head of Assurance and Business Advisory Services for PricewaterhouseCoopers. "We are proud of our longstanding relationship with the Academy and we are honored to again be such an integral part of the Academy Awards."

Prior to mailing, the PricewaterhouseCoopers staff administers a thorough verification process to make sure there are no duplicate ballots and that none are missing. In addition to being counted and sorted, each ballot is numbered to guarantee that it goes to the correct Academy voter.


Garrison and Rosas have been with PricewaterhouseCoopers for 28 years and seven years, respectively. This marks Garrison's ninth year and Rosas' third overseeing the balloting process.

The 76th Academy Award nominations will be announced at the Academy's Samuel Goldwyn Theater on Tuesday, January 27, 2004, at 5:30 a.m. PST.

Academy Awards for outstanding film achievements of 2003 will be presented on Sunday, February 29, 2004, at the Kodak Theatre at Hollywood & Highland® and televised live by the ABC Television Network at 5 p.m. PST, beginning with a half-hour arrival segment.
