The Academy has decide to invite Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences voters to join the voting on three categories --Documentary Feature and Animated and Live Action Shorts--that used to be picked by members who attended and signed into special Academy screenings.

"For the first time this year, our entire membership will be able to vote in three additional categories," AMPAS President Hawk Koch wrote in an emailed letter to voters on Saturday. "The Academy will be sending you DVD screeners of the nominated films from these three categories before final voting begins."
