I like the popular voting, it let GOT win, but I also dislike that is more of a popularity contest. For example, I love Rami Malek, and I wanted him to win, but as soon as I caught up on Ray Donovan, I knew liev Schrieber 100% deserved to win. I was thinking, since the voting was online, what if the acadamey set up an online platform where each category is locked for voting until the voter watches all of the episodes in each category through the platform. For example, a voter cannot vote in the guest supporting actress category until the voter watches all of the episodes for those performers through that platform. I know it sounds complicated, but all it would require is an account to sign in with. I think this would help for several reasons.
this would mostly be used for acting, as it would be too much in the series categories, but it would also work with costumes and other technical categories.
Does anybody else like this idea and does anybody think it can work? Should it be enforced and how?
I like the idea and think it could work.
