Hero Blog Commenter Fixes Oscars


Now that the Academy has upped the number of Best Picture nominees to ten and scrapped the old balloting system, why not really make things interesting? A commenter on a post over at Dave Poland's Hot Blog has a pretty terrific idea (via Kristopher Tapley): "They need to treat the nominees as a top 10 list and not 'nominees.' Then, structure the broadcast around the top 10 like American Idol, and gradually count down the vote tabs from #10 to #1 throughout the program to create suspense." You'd watch that.
