Oscars to Have 10 Best Picture Nominees

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences announced Wednesday that next years Oscars will have ten Best Picture nominees! Whow!

"After more than six decades, the Academy is returning to some of its earlier roots, when a wider field competed for the top award of the year," President Sid Ganis announced.

"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."

Nominations are usually announced in February and the 82nd Academy Awards will be presented on March 7, 2010. Who do think should be nominated this year?
