Glitch gives Oscar voters an extra day.
The nominations for February 24's 85th annual Academy Awards will now be announced on January 10. Ric Roberton, chief operating officer of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, said the extension would make the transition to online balloting as smooth as possible.
The academy partnered electronic voting firm Everyone Counts earlier this year to develop the first Oscars online voting system. In the past voting has been compiled strictly through paper ballots.
