My Ten Best Pictures


In a bold move, the Academy of Motion Pictures of Arts and Science has announced there will be TEN Best Pictures nominees starting next year at the Academy Awards next year. While I understand the reasons behind the move (increase ratings by inserting more films for the fans), my reservation tells me not to mess with tradition despite the fact the Oscars started with ten nominees back in 1929. Who knows, my favorite film at the end of the year might benefit from this move- much like how 'The Dark Knight' fanatics wished this ruling came a year earlier. (Variety)
