Oscars: Now with 50% more!
In yet another attempt to feel less old/outdated, The Oscars have decided to expand their Best Pic category. Doubling it, to be exact: where there were once 5 noms, there will now be 10. The change is supposedly to give more chances to smaller films, foreign films, and films that do well at the box office but tend to get snubbed. This would have been more helpful last year when it came to things like The Dark Knight and Gran Torino (whose exclusion caused a boycott from my aunts; I know see why having just watched it recently). I'll tell you this much for free, the nanosecond Micheal Hack Bay sneaks in with this new clause, I am outta there, fashion or no.
