news//305 FILMS QUALIFY FOR THE 88th ACADEMY AWARDS

AWARDS COVERAGE




While not as many titles made the cut this year as last year, 305 is still a solid number of motion pictures qualifying as eligible for the 88th Academy Awards. To be eligible, a film must be at least 40 minutes in length and begin a 7-day run in a cinema in Los Angeles County by midnight of December 31. The films eligible must also screen in 35mm or 70mm, or an equal digital component, and may be released at the same time on both the big screen, as well as streaming services. This bodes well for productions produced by Netflix, like the awards hopeful Beast of No Nation.

Find the complete list of 305 titles eligible for the 88th Academy Awards below, with films I've seen in bold.
