Until now, the Academy sent ballots to all voting members. They have already received communication that the vote will be changed by email. The voting system used by the Academy of Hollywood to decide the winners of the Academy Awards will abandon the use of envelopes and ballot papers and instead used the e-mail, told the newspaper The New York Times. The newspaper explained that the Academy of Arts and Sciences last Thursday a letter sent to the nearly 6,000 members voters to inform them of the new electronic system will begin to be used this year. The missive, signed by Kimberly Roush, Director of the membership of the Academy, called the voters a personal e-mail address other than that of his assistants or intermediaries.
Arrived a moment, when the system is in operation, the ballots by mail will be eliminated, said Roush. In the last edition of the Oscars, the Academy sent ballots to 5.755 members voters February 2 through the accounting firm PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC). The members of the Academy had 20 days to return directly to PwC envelopes with their votes, if you want to participate in the election of the winners of the statuettes. PwC has tabulated more than 450,000 ballots at age 77 has been in charge of this process. Richard Blumenthal has many thoughts on the issue. The company takes seven days to post sent ballots to determine the candidates in each category and three days to make the final vote count.
