Earlier today Academy members received an email from Hawk Koch announcing that everyone will be permitted to vote for Best Documentary Feature, Best Live Action Short and Best Animated Short, and that everyone will be sent screeners of the nominees. No longer will a few hundred voters, if that many, determine the results in those races. “Remember that documentary and shorts producers usually don’t have money for cab fare, let alone the cost of sending screeners to 6,000 Academy members,” a tipster comments. “So who’s footing the bill? Presumably the Academy, and that’s the headline. Good for them.”
