Oscar Voting To Be Done Online

 LOS ANGELES (AP) — And the winner is… going to be determined online.

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences is planning to change its voting system to allow members to make their picks electronically, rather than through mailed, paper ballots the way they have for years.

The approximately 6,000 members of the Academy received a letter recently, asking that they provide updated email addresses. No exact timetable for the shift is in place, but this is the first step, Academy spokeswoman Leslie Unger said Tuesday.

The change, which The New York Times first reported, could result in an earlier Oscar ceremony. The show usually takes place in late February.
