    but I don't pay enough attention to stuff like this to know... Are the Academy Awards based on peer votes?

  • Essentially  [ Fri Mar 5 2010 4:21 PM ]

    All Academy Award voting is done by members of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences. There are only about 5,000 or so official members. Not everybody in Hollywood is a member. To get in, you have to have shown "a lifelong dedication to the art and science of movies" ... or something like that. A couple of the categories (Best Documentary, for example) are voted on only by people in that particular field of filmmaking. Most categories, however, are voted on by the entire Academy membership.
