On Wednesday, the academy confirmed that there will once again be between five and 10 nominees for Best Picture as has been the case for the last four years. To reap a bid, a film has to be one of the top choices of at least 5% of the members taking part in the nomination phase.
Do you like not knowing how many Best Picture nominees there will be until the announcement is made? Last year, there were eight contenders while in each of the first three years of this system there had been nine nominees.
Perhaps you prefer that the number be fixed at 10 as it was in 2010 and 2011 and had been first in 1933 and then between 1936 and 1943.
Maybe you wish the academy had reverted back to five nominees, as had been the case between 1929 and 1931 and then again between 1944 and 2008.
Then again, you might like to have an even dozen films in the running as there were in 1934 and 1935.
