Vulture jokes fans might mess with Oscars

Vulture jokes fans might mess with Oscars Can't Post

There is a funny piece on Vulture about the problems Academy members are having with the new online Oscar voting (if you go to the longer article in the Hollywood Reporter, they hint it's because the average Academy member age is 62, a bit ageist if you ask me). They also mention that because of the sign in method, it appears to be "wildly susceptible to outside interference. Hope you're ready for a Hobbit sweep!" http://www.vulture.com/2012/12/oscars-e-voting-is-not-going-too-smoothly.html

So all us tech-savvy Hobbit fans are going to hack the Oscars this year, meaning if The Hobbit wins anything it is clearly because of hacking (or elderly Academy member user failure). I guess we should be proud that they think we are smart enough to do this, and that we are passionate enough as well. Or they just think we're nuts.

There's a very fine line between these two things when it comes to being a fanboy/girl! :) // [In reply to] Can't Post

My Top 5 Wish List for "The Hobbit"
5. Legolas will surf down Smaug's neck
4. Bilbo will be revealed to a Robot
3. Naked PJ cameo as Ghan-Buri-Ghan
2. Use of not only 3D, but smell-o-vision, plus the inclusion of axes coming out of the seats and poking the audience when appropriate
1. Not only keep the claim that Thorin & Co. ran amok in Mirkwood "molesting people", but depict said incident in vivid detail!!!!!
