The Oscars are introducing online voting this year which allows for a shorter window for casting nominations ballots (Dec. 17 - Jan. 3). Nominations will be announced Jan. 10 (i.e., the morning of the Critics' Choice Awards and three days before the Golden Globes. )
Final voting takes place from Feb. 8 to Feb. 19, with the 85th Annual Academy Awards taking place on Feb. 24.
