“OscarTorrents is the Oscars as it should be — everyone can download the year’s nominations using the popular BitTorrent service, watch the movies, then use our rating system to choose their favorites. Why restrict the voting to a few bought-off jurors when the whole world can have their say?”.
There’s a ingenious new site called OscarTorrents that conveniently links to all of this year’s Oscar nominees as well as incorporates a voting system so that users can vote for their picks in each category.
It lists each nominee by category and then provides their associated link on the pubic tracker site that contains the appropriate torrent.
From the site:
OscarTorrents is the Oscars as it should be — everyone can download the year’s nominations using the popular BitTorrent service, watch the movies, then use our rating system to choose their favorites. Why restrict the voting to a few bought-off jurors when the whole world can have their say?
Doesn’t get much better than that.
After you’ve viewed each nominee you’re encouraged to vote for whom you think best deserves to win an Oscar in that category.
The site continues:
Once you’ve watched a film, you can vote on it — but please, do watch before you vote! On Oscars night, we’ll post your results right along with the ‘official’ ones. Of course this is the way it should be done now that movie distribution is almost free. Hollywoodland might not like it, but some people always have to be dragged kicking and screaming into the future.
Each of the Oscar categories are listed, with each having its page that provides a brief description by title and then link to the torrent tracker so that you can download the title using BitTorrent.
Downloading Oscar contenders have never been easier.
