Winnipeg Free Press - Section G - - ENTERTAINMENT -

LOS AN­GE­LES — Hol­ly­wood hair­styl­ists are now of­fi­cially el­i­gi­ble for the in­dus­try’s most cov­eted hard­ware: the Os­car.

The film academy said Thurs­day that the Academy Award for makeup will now be known as the makeup and hairstyling award.

Other new rules for the 85th an­nual Academy Awards clar­ify tech­ni­cal re­quire­ments for awards in the for­eign lan­guage and vis­ual ef­fects cat­e­gories. The Academy of Mo­tion Pic­ture Arts and Sciences’ Board of Gov­er­nors also voted to al­low ad­di­tional song­writ­ers to be con­sid­ered in the orig­i­nal song cat­e­gory. Os­car rules are re­viewed an­nu­ally. The 85th Academy Awards will be pre­sented Feb. 24, 2013, at the Dolby The­atre in Los An­ge­les.
