On January 12 the Academy will screen clips featuring each song, in random order, for voting members of the music branch in Los Angeles who will determine the nominees by an averaged point system vote.
If no song receives an average score of at least 8.25 there will be no nominees in the category. If only one song achieves that score, it and the song receiving the next highest score shall be the two nominees. If two or more songs (up to five) achieve that score, they shall be the nominees.
A maximum of two songs may be nominated from any one film. If more than two songs from a film are in contention, the two songs with the most votes will be the nominees.
To be eligible, a song must consist of words and music, both of which are original and written specifically for the film. A clearly audible, intelligible, substantive rendition of both lyric and melody must be used in the body of the film or as the first music cue in the end credits.
The nominations will be announced on February 2.
