Oscar's E-Voting Problems Worse Than Feared (Analysis)

http://j.mp/UBoeOz  (Hollywood Reporter)

     Voting to determine the next set of Oscar nominees began Dec. 17 and
     will extend through Jan. 3. On Dec. 26, I reached out to a wide
     cross-section of the Academy to see if they tried to vote online (an
     Academy spokesperson tells me that "a great majority" of members have
     registered to do so) and, if so, to characterize their experience.
     Roughly half of the members reached said they experienced problems
     navigating the site; more than one described it as a "disaster." They
     also worried that hackers could compromise the Oscar vote.
