Los Angeles - Nominees for next year's Academy Awards will be revealed in Los Angeles on 10 January, five days earlier than had been announced, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences said on Tuesday.

"In an effort to provide members and the public a longer period of time to see the nominated films, the Academy will reveal the 85th Academy Awards nominations on January 10, five days earlier than previously announced," it said in a statement.

The Academy Awards - honoring the best movies, performances and technical film achievements of the year - are scheduled to be held on 24 February 2013 at the Dolby Theatre, where the ceremony has been held for a decade.

Some 6 000 members of the academy will cast their ballots - online for the first time this year - starting 17 December.
