Poll: Do You Like the Ten Best Picture Nominees Idea?

With the Oscars only a couple of weeks away, now might be a good time to talk about that whole 10 Best Picture nominees thing. We've had some time to sit with Oscar's new gimmick, and I'm curious to see whether or not it's resonating with you in a good way or a bad way?


I'm sort of in the middle on it. In one way, I really like the expanded list because it gives more excellent – and in some cases, not at all popular -- films a chance for wider exposure. Without it, chances are films like A Serious Man, The Blind Side, An Education, District 9and Precious probably wouldn't have been nominated for Best Picture, but these are still films way worthy of your attention. Then again, I'm not a guy who likes a lot of change, and, as such, I've grown accustomed to the five nominees, and think there's something to be said (more prestige, perhaps) for only including five films instead of ten.
Like I said, I can go either way, but I'm leaning more toward the ten nominees just because it makes it a little more interesting; gives the folks at home something else to look forward to. Sound off in our poll below and let us know how you really feel about the ten Best Picture nominees idea.
