The Oscars have announced that the best picture line-up will consist of 10 nominees permanently from the 2021 Oscars (the ones happening in 2022, so the one after the next Oscars x). Previously it'd be any amount between 7 to 9 based on some balloting system. The only previous years where there has been 10 set nominees are 2009 and 2010, which brought some of the most inspired best pic nominees *.* fabulous news and a great decision! <3 the academy are also making plans to increase diversity & make a more inclusive Oscar race <3

Just gonna post the 20 Best Picture Nominees from those two years:

2009:
THE HURT LOCKER
- A Serious Man
- An Education
- Avatar
- The Blindside
- District 9
- Inglorious Basterds
- Precious
- Up
- Up In The Air


2010:
THE KING'S SPEECH
- 127 Hours
- Black Swan
- Inception
- The Fighter
- The Kid's Are All Right
- The Social Network
- Toy Story 3
- True Grit
- Winter's Bone


Just by that expansion... those lists looks so much more diverse and accurate for the years, including the blockbusters and animations too. It should just be a perfect 10 anyway! It's a nice, round number! laugh.gif

That's great news, I agree the 2009 and 2010 Best Picture nominations stand out as being a lot more diverse than sets since so hopefully that can continue.

I don't know how they're gonna manage it for 2021 though, will there even be ten films to judge overall? basil.gif

They *should* be fine tbh! laugh.gif

All the movies that get Oscar nominated are usually released in the US from about September - End of November, beginning Dec! Whether any of those contenders get pushed back due to the blockbusters being pushed back, I don't know laugh.gif

I imagine Tenet will be the first major contender for the pictures this year! Although I'd LOVE for 'The Invisible Man' to get a look in! wub.gif

2021 is sticking to the flexible format system so I imagine we’re gonna get 7/8 noms this year aha!
