Nominations for the 78th Annual Academy Awards® were announced today by Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences President Sid Ganis and Oscar®-winner Mira Sorvino.

Ganis and Sorvino, who won her Academy Award in 1995 for her supporting role in "Mighty Aphrodite," announced ten of the 24 categories live at a 5:30 a.m. news conference attended by over 430 international media.

Academy members selected the nominees in their respective branches, with the exception of the Animated Feature and Foreign Language Film categories, where nominations were selected by vote of screening committees. All voting members are eligible to select the Best Picture nominees. Ballots were mailed to 5,856 members in late December and were returned directly to PricewaterhouseCoopers, the international accounting firm, for tabulation.

Official screenings of all pictures with a nomination will begin this weekend for members at the Academy's Samuel Goldwyn Theater. Screenings in some categories also will be held in the Academy's Linwood Dunn Theater in Hollywood and 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 2005 will be presented on Sunday, March 5, at the Kodak Theatre at Hollywood & Highland® and televised live by the ABC Television Network beginning at 5 p.m. PST / 8 p.m. EST.
