The voting for AMPAS ballots doesn’t start until Fed.20.
And the voting closes on Feb.27.
Last year, they relied more and more every day on filing out the ballots digitally.
And Feb. 20 is still far off. Why? It’s because of the postponements due to the Winter Olympics.
If there are contests and categories that are up in the air like, this year, Best Supporting Actress and Best Original Screenplay, whoever wins there gets a super-boost here as the memberships overlap.
