Special Oscar Edition: Weekend Reading on Women's Representation February 26, 2016


Hello movie fans!

As some of you may know, the Academy uses ranked choice voting to select best picture, best actor, and best actress. You can learn more about how the Oscar voting process works on the FairVote website.
