Hollywood, California: The holidays may be winding down, but for Oscar fans, the season of celebration has just begun.
The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences mailed out 5,810 official Oscar nominations ballots to voting members this past Friday, and perhaps no one was more excited - or more daunted - to cast votes than its 105 newest members.
Also, this year several new categories have been announced, among which are:
Best Boy, Played By A Girl.
Key Grip On Himself/Herself
Most Frolicking Hairdresser
Best Party Crasher Bouncer
Best Sticky Floor Remover
Best Sticky Chair Remover
Best Neckers In Back Row And/Or Balcony
Best Loud Whisperer During Show
Most Removed For Unzipped Pants
Best Cigarette Bummer
Best Stuntman Performance Awarded Posthumously.
The results will soon be "in the mail."
