Ten Best Picture nominees… Really? What do you think?

When the Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences announced it’s doubling the number of Best Picture nominees to ten, my first thought was “gawd, that means the Oscars will run even longer than ever!” My second thought was “will they be able to find ten worthy films.” Odds are there are now going to be at least one or two “artsy-fartsy” (sorry Arty Chick) movies on the list that no one has ever heard of and those of us who try to see ALL of the nominated films each year will feel compelled to go see.
