The time - honored practice of Oscar winners listing name after name of the people they want to thank during their acceptance speeches is about to change.
This year, the speeches will be more anecdotal and the names of people they wish to thank will appear in a scroll at the bottom of the screen during their allotted 45 seconds.
The new rule was announced by producers Reginald Hudlin and David Hill at the annual Oscar nominees luncheon in Beverly Hills.
All the nominees are being required to submit a list of whom they'd like to thank in the scroll, but they can still also mention major influences in their acceptance speech.
The Academy Awards is going take place on 28 February 2016.
