Best Picture Oscar expanded to 10 nominees ?

It's the truth. It's kind of like a catch-22. I see where other genres could squeeze into the expansion like comedies and action films ( as in Star Trek for example ) but when you keep it at 5 nominees it really brings the nomination into a distinction from other movies. Yet I do make a top 10 of the year list ( and a 20 as well ), not a top 5. I guess we'll see how it turns out.
Personally, I'd keep it at 5. And bring back the winners of the previous acting categories to introduce the new nominees. That experiment where they have 5 different actors up on stage was lame. Keep the tradition that's been going on for years. It just works.

Started to really pay attention to film ( movies ) what was going on in front of the camera, but more interestingly, behind it as well at about as far back as age 10. Motion pictures ( when good ) are a fascinating medium. All the work and prep that goes into filmmaking. It's an amazing process !
