Attention members of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences. Do you want to vote for the Oscars this year? I was told at lunch today by a friend at the New York branch, the following: all members must contact the Academy and register to vote online (or by paper if you have no access to a computer) by this Thursday, November 30th. If you’re not registered, you won’t be able to vote online or on paper. Period. There’s some fear now that a lot of people are still not signed up for the new system. In this, maybe the best year for Oscar potential films in a generation, it would be a debacle if someone tried to vote and found out they couldn’t. Visit the academy website for more info, or just call ‘em.
