I think that Oscars are pretty much a bust for the most part, but I hope they wind up expanding the nominations in most of the other categories but from what the article stated is that the Best Pic category is the only one to be affected by this.

Now if only one of the best pic nominees was required to be a Uwe Boll movie...

Good idea.  The 5 extra films won't have a chance of winning, but it's nice for some flicks that aren't dramas or historical epics the Academy loves to get some form of recognition.

I think they'll break up the five new slots this way:

1 will go to a well-reviewed blockbuster (DARK KNIGHT)
1 will go to the dominant Disney/Pixar flick of the year
1 will go to a foreign film
1 will go to an independently produced film
1 will go to a crazy leftist documentary

This is not a new idea. If you go back to some of the earliest awards, you'll see that they often nominated more than five films. It is only more recently that the nominations were resstricted to five.

What this will not change is the eventual winner. Oh, some dark horse may sneak in and win. One that otherwise might not have been nominated. Especially if the favorites split the vote. But, the only way we'll have some major changes in the winners, is if there is a major shake up in the Academy membership. And I don't see that happening anytime soon.

Actually, this change may hurt some films, especially if they eliminate Best Animated Film. Pixar has a virtual lock on that, as long as it only has to compete with other animated films, but if it has to compete also with live action films, who can say. Though, one could say last year's "Wall-E" was the best film animated or live action.
