Probably this is a fake leak of information; but today an e-mail was everywhere on the web, getting to every mailbox, and being forwarded by thousands and millions of people.
What is this mail about?
It´s a suposedly leaked letter from Sid Ganis, the President of the Academy of motion Pictures, Arts & Science, where he revealed all the Oscars Winners for this Sunday Award Ceremony.

I think this is a big fake info… since the process shouldn´t give this kind of info to Sid Ganis, nor it is faxed from one another. Since after final ballots are tabulated, only two partners of PricewaterhouseCoopers know the results until the famous envelopes are opened onstage during the Academy Awards presentation.
What do you think? Did the Oscars winner complete list leaked or is it fake?
