Voting for the Oscar nominations has been
extended for a day due to a glitch in the online voting process, the
Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences announced Wednesday.
The Hollywood Reporter said the extension was needed after Academy members had trouble logging in to the online voting system, which is being used for the first time this year. All nominees will be announced as scheduled on January 10, three days before the Golden Globes.
"By extending the voting deadline, we are providing every opportunity available to make the transition to online balloting as smooth as possible," Academy chief operating officer Ric Robertson said. "We're grateful to our global membership for joining us in this process."
