Woah Woah Woah Woah... 10 > 5

Sid Ganis, president of the Academy, announced yesterday that the 82nd Academy Awards will now feature *TEN* nominees for Best Picture instead of 5.  This is how the Academy used to do things way back in the day (I think they stopped in 1940).

Unlike pretty much everyone in bloggerverse, I think this is a fantastic idea.  Widening the pool means that even if there are some crappy nominees, there will be more good nominees (theoretically).  It makes the race more interesting, because votes become more split. 

Just please, stop toying with the show itself.
