    I was thinking about the best acting category this year “Best Supporting Actress.” I was wondering if you guys think it would be good for the acting categories to have 5-10 nominees like “Best Picture”?

    I personally think it would be good and very competitive. They don’t have to choose 10 nominees. Just whoever gives a worthy performance.

    What do you guys think?

    No. Then the value of an acting nomination at the Oscars will reduce and some really undeserving perfomances like Amy Adams (Hillbilly Eelegy) will get nominated.

    Yes. But you know how some critics groups do nods that range from 3 to 7? I feel like if there was a way to account for the quality of the category in a good way, I’d be onboard, but otherwise yes for sure I definitely don’t want any Critics Choice nonsense. The Emmys system isn’t bad. They can technically range from 4 to 7 but the rules try to keep it to 5.

    Of course, certain years would only need 5 nominees but imagine a year like ther 2000 lineup where they could have added more nominees.

    Best Actress Nominees of 2000
    Joan Allen (The Contender)
    Juliette Binoche (Chocolate)
    Bjork (Dancer in the Dark)
    Ellen Burstyn (Requiem for a Dream)
    Maggie Cheung (In the Mood for Love)
    Laura Linney (You Can Count on Me)
    Julia Roberts (Erin Brockovich)
    Michelle Yeoh (Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon)

    Even with 5 nominees, there’s atleast 2 or 3 mediocre and hammy performances get in and one of them even lock for a win (Malek, Lawrence, Oldman, Stone, Bale, Pitt, Hathaway, etc). I can’t imagine 10 slots. Kill me now darling.

    No. If you reward everyone, you reward no one.

    They should do what the daytime Emmys used to do, have a first round of voting which determined the ten pre-nominees, and then a second round of voting with an ordinals system of voting where voters would vote for their top five choices and then the other five on their ballot would get 6 points each. (So first place gets 1 point, second place gets 2 points, etc. Lowest wins the category). This system would alleviate pressure into feeling compelled to vote for someone who you think is going to win and instead vote for who you honestly think is the best in each of the acting categories.

    I think having 6 instead of 5 in some years based on the voting differentials for the acting categories would be ok but I would not expand it beyond that. It seems that the acting races, especially Actress/Supporting Actress races, are getting increasingly more competitive and it would be nice to have an opportunity to recognize more talent.

    No, maybe 6, but more than that it would be a joke.

    There are already more acting categories than there should be…the thought of expanding nominations for all four ??? Blech

    Joan Allen (The Contender)

    Laura Linney (You Can Count on Me)
    Julia Roberts (Erin Brockovich)
    Michelle Yeoh (Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon)

    You stab yourself in the foot with this one, given Allen, Binoche, Burstyn, and Cheung should be nowhere near a “Best Actress” conversation for those performances. If the result of plumping up the categories is, as I imagine would be reality, that we’re adding more crap, count me out.

    I disagree. Maggie Cheung gave an amazing performance for In The Mood for Love, rivalling Tony Leung which is an achievement on its own. Had the movie been released today, it would have garnered multiple nominations, and arguably wins, across the board.

    I’m torn on this one, I would love if they revealed who was in 6th place (if they ever counted more than 5)…it would be interesting to know who just missed out most years

    FYC:

    Swinton, Weerasethakul Memoria, (Best Actress, Director)
    Efira, Rampling, Wilson Benedetta (Best Actress, Supporting Actress/Actor)
    Rapace Lamb (Best Actress)

    Maybe. Especially if the voting for the noms is super close, I could see them expanding it to 6 to honor another performance, but that should have limits. With the Emmy’s it kinda dilutes the impact to have like 9 people in some of the acting categories.

    Hell no. If everyone and their grandma becomes an Oscar nominee then it won’t be a great career achievement anymore.
