On Jan. 11, members of the Academy’s Makeup Artists and Hairstylists Branch will be invited to screen excerpts from the seven films. After the screenings, members will vote to nominate the three films that will vie for the Oscar.

Last year, the Academy altered a number of categories, which included adding hairstyling to the makeup category. “Les Misérables” won the category this year.

Nominations for February’s ceremony will be announced Jan. 16 and handed out March 2.
