Will early Oscar ballot damage Django?


Some grumbling is afoot as regards changes in voting procedures at the Oscars. Ballot papers were due in yesterday – significantly earlier than in previous years – and, as a result, many voters are struggling to catch up with movies that have snuck into US cinemas at Christmas time. Academy members do receive screener DVDs, but the change in regulations could still damage late entrants such as Quentin Tarantino’s Django Unchained and Tom Hooper’s Les Misérables. As Variety pointed out last week, the invisibility of Tarantino’s film at the Screen Actors Guild awards was surely down to the fact that it wasn’t finished before voting ended. The Oscar nominations will be with us on January 10th.
