There will be 10 best picture nominees starting with the 82nd Oscar ceremony, [scheduled] for March 7, at the Kodak Theater in Hollywood.
My feeling is that this will make room for two types of movies that usually get snubbed: the well-reviewed big action picture, and the too small art film. E.g., last year this new rule may've made room for Iron Man and Frozen River. I like that. On the other hand, it will make Best Picture trivia that much harder. (via aicn)
