The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences has announced the schedule for the final round of voting for this year's Oscars.

Final balloting will begin on Friday, February 8, at 8 a.m. PT, and close on Tuesday, February 19, at 5 p.m. PT. To provide as many options as possible, Academy members who voted online during the nominations round will have the option of using a paper ballot in the final round. Members who have registered to vote online may request a paper ballot by contacting the Academy's Membership Department by Friday, February 1.

Several voting resources will once again be available to members, including assisted voting stations in Los Angeles, New York, and London, and a 24-hour call center.

"One of our basic goals at the Academy is to increase member engagement. Despite some challenges, more members voted for this year's nominations than they have in the past several years," said Academy Chief Operating Officer Ric Robertson. "We are looking forward to a continuation of that trend in the final voting."

Oscars for outstanding film achievements of 2012 will be presented on Oscar Sunday, February 24, at the Dolby Theatre at Hollywood & Highland Center, and will be hosted by Seth MacFarlane live on the ABC Television Network. The Oscar presentation also will be televised live in more than 225 countries worldwide.
