I need to remove myself from a a few awards that I'm under. For example, my actress won best actress award and I'm listed under the award recipient when it should only be her. Same goes for my cinematographer. Is there an easier way to do this without deleting and starting over?

Were the actress & cinematographer nominated for the award, even if they didn't win it?

The page at https://contribute.imdb.com/updates/guide/awards says:
Correcting existing data
Recipients / Titles / Companies: Currently, the only way to edit existing recipient, title and/or company data is to submit a deletion request for the entire award, and resubmit it with the correct information.

Hi James -

As Steve mentioned above, the only way to modify recipient listings on awards is to remove the award and then re-add the correct details.

However, I can manually make the corrections for you if you post the award details and links here, confirming the award/event in question, what names are kisted incorrectly and what names need to be added.  Additionally, if there are any online links to verify the named recipients (such as a festival site, media article, etc.) please also post that information here and our staff can take a look for you.

Hello Holly,

According to the official film festival page (Nice International Film Festival - 2019 winners), all of the recipients should be removed. Also, the award is listed in the wrong category (From Best Costume to Best Hair, Makeup and Body Design) and a new category needs to be created.

An update will be submitted to correct the errors. On average, updates can take 2-3 days to procees (more or less). In the case of Awards, it may take longer than 2-3 days so please be patient.

On another matter, it appear that this is your first post to GetSatisfaction. Welcome.

You've responded to a post from two years ago and is considered Solved, which means IMDb representatives will unlikely respond to posts considered Solved or Answered.

I would suggest clicking the New Post button and start a new discussion page instead of submitting a reply to years-old posts.

Also, if you have an IMDb user account or an IMDbPro account, you are welcome to contribute.
Please check out the IMDb Help Page below for more information.

I hope this helps. Thanks for the report.

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled How to remove myself from award as a recipient?.

Sorry for the re-post I never got a reply in the last thread. I need to remove myself from a a few awards that I'm under. For example, my actress won best actress award and I'm listed under the award recipient when it should only be her. Same goes for my cinematographer. Is there an easier way to do this without deleting and starting over?

Michelle, thank you so much. There is still one thing left if you can help with. I need my name James Shahanshah removed from the casting part "International Independent Film Awards"

http://www.imdb.com/event/ev0002811/2017?ref_=nmawd_awd_6

Also, under Los Angeles Cinefest its still a blank space, is there a way you can implement the name of the movie under there as "Semi-Finalist"

http://www.imdb.com/name/nm8783817/awards?ref_=nm_ql_2

Thanks so much for all the work.

Hi Michelle,
I have the same problem...I need an "Award" removed from my imdb page...I am a Script Supervisor but I'm listed as one of the "Winners" for "Best Costume" on a Short Film. I had nothing to do with wardrobe; I was the Script Supervisor! Are you able to help me remove it from my page? Holly Tyrer
