Why Nominate 5 When You Can Nominate 10
Yep, for some reason there are 10 movies up for the Best Picture award at the Oscars. President Sid Ganis said, “Having 10 Best Picture nominees is going to allow Academy voters to recognize and include some of the fantastic movies that often show up in the other Oscar categories, but have been squeezed out of the race for the top prize.” They might as well have nominated HANGOVER; but I'm pretty sure Avatar will win (it's what the people want).
Best Movie nominations are: "Avatar," "The Hurt Locker," “District 9,” “An Education,” “Inglourious Basterds,” “Precious,” “A Serious Man,” “Up,” “Up in the Air” and “The Blind Side.”
On a lighter note, nomination for Best Foreign Film include an Argentine and Peruvian flick!
