“After more than six decades, the Academy is returning to some of its earlier roots, when a wider field competed for the top award of the year. The final outcome, of course, will be the same — one best picture winner — but the race to the finish line will feature 10, not just five, great movies from 2009.”
The question is, are there 10 movies worthy of a Best Picture nomination? However, there is some obvious good out of this: now the Academy has no excuse to not give Up a best picture nod. I mean seriously there’s 10 spots now.
