West Coast Bureau of THE FILM DAILY Hollywood — The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences will make two additional awards this year for the best performances by an actor and actress in supporting roles. A change will be made in nominations for four major awards — production, acting, directing, writing. In the past, each branch made its own nominations.
