where the writers are

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences have adjusted a few of their rules for the upcoming Oscar ceremony at the Dolby Theatre on February 24th, 2013. Among the changes:

~ The Academy Award category for makeup will be known as Best Makeup and Hairstyling

~ The Board of Governors also voted to allow additional songwriters to be considered in the Original Song category

~ Clarifications were made in the rules regarding technical requirements to be eligible in the Foreign Language and Visual Effects categories

Each year, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences reviews each category rule established by previous Board of Governors.

The Academy also announced new member invitees. They include Best Actor winner Jean Dujardin, Best Supporting Actress Octavia Spencer, and Best Director Michel Hazanavicius. 2011 Oscar-nominated supporting actresses Berenice Bejo, Melissa McCarthy, Janet McTeer, Jessica Chastain; and supporting actor Jonah Hill are among the 176 moviemakers asked to become part of Academy membership. Another actor on the list: Matthew McConaughey.
