In the following article : "H. Matsumura, P. Monsky, On the automorphisms of hypersurfaces, J. Math. Kyoto Univ. 3 (1964) 347-361", it is shown that in finite characteristic, automorphism groups of smooth hypersurfaces of $\mathbb{P}^N$ are finite (with known exceptions such as quadrics, elliptic curves, K3 surfaces). However, the question of their reducedness is left open. Does anyone know something about it ?

In fact, we need to show that $H^0(X,T_X)=0$. In characteristic $0$, you can use Bott's theorem to do that. What can you do in finite characteristic ?
