President Ford, The Oscars and the USPS

Email Email Print

David Carr, writng at his New York Times’ blog “The Carpetbagger,” notes that the state funeral for President Ford may have tweaked the Oscars balloting:

Because President Bush declared Tuesday a national day of mourning, the United States Postal Service did not deliver mail. No big deal right? Except that yesterday was the deadline for ballots to be returned to the Producer’s Guild of American and the Screen Actors Guild for their respective film awards. And those Oscar screeners that were coming out at the end of the year spent a day somewhere deep in the bowels of the postal system.

Those studio folks with skin in the game were spending the day freaking out a bit, wondering what the rare three-day shutdown of the postal system would mean.
