How to Fix the Oscars

An interesting article from Virginia Postrel. I like her first two suggestions, but not the third one. I bet that all three would be too radical to actually implement though . . .

They shouldn't vote on movies until they've been out for at least one year. That would eliminate a ton of forgettable movies, in my opinion. In 2012, they would be voting on movies that were released on New Year's Eve 2010.

I could live with that. I wonder, especially with the breakout art-house films, how well they'll age. Of course, on the other hand, part of the purpose for the Oscars is to sell movies and a year's delay wouldn't help with that.
