The Satellite Award for Best Motion Picture is one of the annual awards given to motion pictures by the International Press Academy. In 2011, the IPA pared down its Satellite nominations in the motion picture categories from 22 to 19 classifications; the change reflects the merger of drama and comedy under a general Best Picture heading, including the Best Actor/Actress headings and the Supporting headings. The former musical and comedy categories are included below.
