New Oscar Schmoozing Rules; Linney to be Honored

• The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences will implement new rules for receptions, panels and other events for newly Oscar-nominated films. Check out the full press release at Back Stage.

The New York Times observers that the word vagina is popular this fall on television. Sadly, "master of my domain" has not made a comeback.

• Signature Theater Company will name one of its new performance spaces after the late playwright Romulus Linney, reported The New York Times. Two decades ago, Linney was the founding playwright-in-residence at the Off-Broadway company.

• The Visual Effects Society, which represents visual artists and practitioners, issued an "Industry Bill of Rights." According to Los Angeles Times, the document arose out of qualms over poor work conditions and sparse job security.

• James Cameron hopes to create a literal stamp of approval for 3D films, reported The Wrap. The Cameron-Pace Group wants to officialize its certification process for 3D movies, and a way for filmmakers to be certified is to rent the company's equipment. Though Cameron says people will be paying  for the services, not the stamp, they're actually paying for both. He's making it so that if you don't have his stamp, then your 3D may not be considered good and people might not see your film, making you rent the equipment in the first place. Sorry, independent 3D filmmakers, if you even exist. It's a three-dimensional game of Monopoly and Cameron is the banker.
