Looks like someone's pulling a fast one here. Not very unlikely though.

And our Indian media seem to have fallen for it. Which is quite obvious from the text in the URL
‘Leaked’ Oscar winners list is 'complete fraud' - Express India

But apparently they seem to have changed the headline quick enough

This article says PWC. The same as in Satyam. Perhaps the leakage could be there, and in a case of adverse selection, perhaps now the Oscar list will be changed at the last minute!!!. Now, the Oscar may go to Uwe Boll for best picture, director, actor, and what not.

This is nothing but fraud. Just a spoof by someone who had too much time on his hands.
