Academy Awards Members Too Old To Figure Out New E-Voting System?!

| Filed under: Film FlickersTech TalkOscars

We think Meryl Streep's reaction says it all… WHAAAATTT?!

It seems that this year's all new online voting system for the Oscars is leaving many members of the Academy confused about the process.

Apparently, some are describing the new system as a "disaster" and others are scared a hacker could easily compromise the whole site!

However, a spokesperson for the Academy claims that the issues most members are experiencing are due to the simple fact that they are "forgetting or misusing passwords"…

Which to us seems like a subtle jab insinuating certain members are a bit too old to be comfortable with the virtual voting system!

Ok, it's a tad ageist, but we kinddaaaa get it. Have you ever tried to teach an 80-year-old how to use the internet?!

It's NOT as easy as Grandma's apple pie, that's for sure!

    It's a blatant attempt to disenfranchise the elderly. They can be confused easily.

    God you ARE an asshole. no fucking wonder you NEVER get an interview/story from a real star. The only people who talk to you are D-list at best. Your momma ought to be slapping the living shit out of you. if I were you, if you EVER find yourself at the same event as Meryl (unlikely as you would not be invited to anything) you should run and hide behind some woman's skirt. On behalf of mature people every where,,,FUCK YOU.

    Enough of this ignorant ageism. We will all be elderly some day, and karma will bite those on the ass who do not give respect to those that came before you.

    Re: Ms. B Nice – Boy are you right. I remember when my late FIL had his first stroke. My Aunt Lib was walking by and heard one young gall say "Wow, Mr. X is really old". Aunt Lib said, if you are lucky, so will you be someday. We all get old. Fact of life.

    I do know an 80 year old who uses an ipad. In terms of technology changing so quickly I am totally confused. When I become familiar with a system some brilliant people decide to change it. Why I ask? Why? I am not 80 but I am confused with internet technology and the constant change. Ageism is rampant and the good news is we all have a turn with it.
