|Hi <<First Name>>!
Last month we talked about Oregon
when it nearly used approval voting for the second time.
This month we decided to comment on awards ceremonies
, as we have in the past
. It turns out that many awards don't use very good voting methods.
Naturally, when awards make strange decisions, controversy arises. There looks to have been a vote splitting issue with the Grammy's concerning Beyonce and Beck. And with the Oscars using instant runoff voting with lots of candidates, anything can happen.
What's an award really worth when it has a bad voting method?
