Oscar To Have 10 Best Picture Nominees in 2010
The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences announced today that the 2010 Oscar ceremonies will include 10 films in contention for Best Picture.
â€śAfter 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,â€ť said Sid Ganis, president of the academy. â€śThe final outcome, of course, will be the same â€” one Best Picture winner â€” but the race to the finish line will feature 10, not just five, great movies from 2009.â€ť
This at least looks like a reaction to this yearâ€™s much-maligned roster, which excluded the most well-received and well-attended film of 2008, â€śThe Dark Knight,â€ť as well as the second most well-received film of that year, â€śWall-E.â€ť And, it is Staticblogâ€™s scrupulously founded opinion that those films were excluded because of furious campaigning by The Weinstein Company on behalf of â€śThe Reader.â€ť
