The biggest news was what the 54-person board elected not to alter: the one-week theatrical release required for an Oscar nomination.In a statement, academy president John Bailey said the issue “weighed heavily in our discussions” and that the film industry’s changes will continue to merit study and debate. But for now, a brief release in a Los Angeles County theatre remains the bar for entry.Some board members have argued that a more substantial theatrical release should be required.Jake Coyle, The Associated Presscenter_img by Jake Coyle, The Associated Press Posted Apr 24, 2019 6:50 am PDTlast_img
