It's been a while since I've started any threads, but I saw this on the IMDB front page and knew immediately that it had to be posted: BREAKING: Oscar’s Best Picture Nominees Will Expand to Ten – RopeofSilicon.com Movie News, Trailers, Reviews and More So, what thoughts do you guys have on the subject? I'm torn. On the one hand, it would add some more excitement to the proceedings. On the other hand, it would multiply the disappointment by 9 (If my math is correct), because there's still going to be only one winner for Best Picture. Sincerely, John Kilduff... I wonder if this means that there will be 10 director slots as well.
