New Oscar rules for music proclaimed


Oscar organisers have put new rules in place to ensure fair campaigning in its music categories.

Therefore the Academy members will be no longer allowed to contact voters via any means to promote their song for nomination.

And Members will also not be allowed to attend a live performance of eligible songs unless attached to a screening.

It comes following the disqualification in the original song category this year after it emerged a songwriter had emailed voters to consider his song.

It was later discovered Bruce Broughton - a former Academy governor and current executive committee member - emailed at least 70 of the 240-member music branch during the nomination period to bring his song to their attention.
