The Academy reconsidering putting back the 5 Best Picture Oscar nominees only rule again




Sources are telling THR that AMPAS/The Academy are really reconsidering putting the old 5 Best Picture only rule for the Oscars again.

The Academy (or insiders) are realizing there's really not advantage in pushing the 5-10 Best Picture nominations rule that has been implemented the last few years (thanks to everyone bitching about how 'The Dark Knight' should have gotten a Best Pic nod back in 2008 - I still remember that bullshit).

“They tried it and it really didn’t do us any good,” says one high-level source.

Academy spokesperson: "As we do each year, the Academy will meet in the coming months to evaluate not only the telecast but also the awards season in its entirety."
