“Best Picture” award at the Oscars will be chosen by IRV (Instant Runoff Voting)

from Ballot Access News
Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences to Use Instant Runoff Voting for “Best Picture”

September 2nd, 2009

On August 31, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences said it will use Instant Runoff Voting to choose the “best picture” Oscar winner. In June 2009, the Academy had decided to nominate ten movies, not five, for “best picture”. The Academy apparently believed that, with so many nominees, IRV will result in a fairer decision. The Academy had also used IRV for “best picture” in 1945 and earlier years. Thanks to Rob Richie for this news. See this story from the Los Angeles Times. Also see Blair Bobier’s commentary at the New America Foundation blog.
