Oscar Voters Can't Cast a Ballot with Safari

Link, Movies, Technology

Anne Thompson on digital Oscar ballots:

Sure enough, whoever designed the electronic ballot did so not only with complex hacker-prevention passwords that have bedeviled some of the Academy’s 5700 members–the average age of the Academy voter is 58–it also doesn’t work with Mac browser Safari. Some Academy members who are not Luddites still had to call the 24-hour help hotline, and were told to download another browser.

Makes me wonder what technology their voting system relies on. Leave it to AMPAS to screw up a web form.
