Choice Voting to be Used for Academy Awards, Once Again

OscarsFor decades, the Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences have used choice voting to select Oscar nominees. The process has long been seen as a fair way of representing the breadth of quality films released in a given year, while allowing underdog films to have a chance at winning awards. Choice voting, a proportional voting method, is used for governmental elections around the world, but proportional voting is also widely used in non-governmental elections.
