July 9, 2010 (Sampurn Wire): The next Academy Awards Ceremony will be a more glorious moment for the visual-effects category. The “Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences’ has raised the number of nominations in this category. This was announced by their board of governors.

The visual-effects category nominations have been increased to five from the original number of three. The next Oscar awards ceremony will be on February 27, which will be the 83rd awards show.

As the digital-animation technology is advancing continuously, the attention will switch towards the visual effects category. This category has featured three nominees every year since 1996. Last year, the award for this category went to the science-fiction blockbuster Avatar.

On Thursday, the academy has also announced some alterations in the feature-animation category. The minimum running time for the feature-animation category has been shortened to 40 minutes, from the original 70 minutes.

According to the new rules, the language has to elucidate what constitutes an animated film.
