Oscar voting to go electronic

Reports suggest that a new, electronic voting system could be introduced for the Oscars as early as this year. It would replace the postal ballot. It could result in the awards ceremony being held much earlier in the year (but not until 2013) - which would be very welcome news. Speeding up the process has the potential to make the Oscars more relevant. If the Academy Awards were to leap frog all the other awards shows, it would be even better. That way the winners might be genuine surprises and the Oscars would be an 'event' as opposed to an after-thought.

Next year's Oscars ceremony takes place on 26 February
