The Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences has officially begun. However, the Academy Awards is set to implement through electronic voting for the Oscars. An official letter has been dispatched by the academy to voting members asking them for their personal email addresses as first step to eliminate paper ballots. This news has been whirling on the web.

The letter states that a new electronic voting system could be implemented as early as this year and definitely will be in implemented by 2012. However, the Academy has not returned a request for comment, but the letter appears to imply that electronic voting could be in effect for the 2012 Academy Awards and surely will be implemented by the 2013 show. The letter says that at some point once the system is up and working, mailed ballots will be eliminated.

Reportedly, the academy is requesting the personal emails of all its members, but not the address which a member access through an assistant or other intermediary. It may prove problematic for few of the older members who do not use the email and for some studio heads, which remain reluctant to take on the widespread technology.

One of the obstructions to moving its show earlier in the calendar year has been the lengthy balloting process. More likely, the academy would get ahead of the other award show that honors the best films of the year.
