Nominations for the 74th Annual Academy Awards were announced on February 12, 2002 by Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences President Frank Pierson and Oscar® winner Marcia Gay Harden. Pierson and Harden announced ten of the 24 categories at a 5:30 a.m. news conference attended by over 400 international media. Nominations in all categories were distributed simultaneously to news media in attendance.

Harden received her first Academy Award Nomination last year at the 73rd Academy Awards, and won the Supporting Actress Oscar for her portrayal of Lee Krasner, the artist wife of abstract expressionist painter Jackson Pollock, in "Pollock."

Academy members selected the nominees in their respective branches, with the exception of the Animated Feature, Foreign Language Film and Makeup categories, where nominations were selected by vote of screening committees. All members select the Best Picture nominees. The secret ballots were mailed to 5,739 members in early January and were returned directly to PricewaterhouseCoopers, the international accounting firm, for tabulation.

Official screenings of all pictures with a nomination begin on February 15 for members at the Academy's Samuel Goldwyn Theater. Screenings in special categories are also held in London, New York and San Francisco.

The Academy's entire active and life membership is eligible to select the winners in all categories, although in five of them - the two short film, the two documentary and the foreign language film categories - members can vote only after attesting they have seen all of the nominated films in those categories.

Academy Awards® for outstanding film achievements of 2001 were presented on Sunday, March 24, at the Kodak Theatre at Hollywood & Highland® and televised live by the ABC Television Network beginning at 5:30 p.m. PST. A half-hour arrival segment will precede the presentation ceremony at 5 p.m.


Eligibility for Academy Award consideration is subject to these rules (other rules may apply), and to those special rules approved by their Board of Governors which follow.

All eligible motion pictures, unless otherwise noted (primary exceptions below), must be:
a) feature length (defined as over 40 minutes),
b) publicly exhibited by means of 35mm or 70mm film or non-video tape digital process,
c) for paid admission in a commercial motion picture theater in Los Angeles County and open between January 1, 2001 and midnight of December 31, 2001,
d) for a run of at least seven consecutive days,
e) advertised and exploited during its Los Angeles run in a manner considered normal and customary to the industry, and
f) within the awards year deadlines specified: films which receive their first public exhibition or distribution in any manner other than as a theatrical motion picture release will not be eligible for Academy Awards in any category. This includes broadcast and cable television, as well as home video marketing and internet transmission.

Exceptions to the eligibility requirements and methods of qualifying listed appear in the Special Rules for the Animated Feature Film Award (e.g. at least 70 minutes in running time and where a significant number of the major characters in the film are animated, and animation figures in no less than 75% of the picture's running time), the Documentary Awards, the Foreign Language Film Award, the Music Awards, and the Short Films Awards.
