A last-minute campaign called into question that has Riseborough nominated for $27,000 to LaceyYeh played down any notion that it flouted academy norms.

“The Academy has always prided itself on playing by the rules and by the rules [cheating them] It was so easy it could have been done earlier,” Yeh told the BBC today activities. “We are always evolving how we can protect our integrity and I have every confidence we will continue to do so.”

The Academy examined Riseborough’s Oscar nod, which came after an aggressive campaign by some fellow nominee Cate Blanchett, but refused to withdraw. However, it is pondering whether “a new era of social media and digital communication may require changes to the guidelines”.
