Does this mean the show will be even longer?
The Academy Motion Picture Arts and Sciences announced today that there will be TEN Best Picture nominees at the 82nd Academy Awards ceremony next March. TEN. Not split up between comedy and drama like the Golden Globes, and presumably still having separate categories for Animated, Foreign and Documentary.
Does this mean that genre movies like Star Trek might have a chance of getting nominated for something other than effects? Will there be ten Best Director nominations (assuming there are ten nominated movies directed by ten different people)? What about the acting categories; will they expand in numbers too? Does Up stand a chance of being nominated in both the Best Picture and the Best Animated category?
