that allowed visitors to create a personalized ballot page featuring their picks in all 23 major Oscar categories. During the telecast on March 26th, millions of users around the world returned to their personal page and watched their score update in real time, as each winner was announced.
 
The application was coded entirely in client-side Javascript, compatible with 3.0-level browsers and above. It took us a whopping 8 hours.
