Twitter users will be able to vote on their favorite film of 2021 by tweeting the title along with #OscarsFanFavorite and #Sweepstakes. However, the movie that gets the most votes will be revealed during the Academy Award broadcast on March 27. Further, the Academy has also announced that a vote will count for any movie, even if it did not receive a single Oscar nomination and the users can vote up to 20 times per day.
The voting period will be open from February 14 to March 3.
