The Academy has caught a lot of flak for opening up the Best Picture Oscar field to ten films. Realistically, we think only half of them have a chance of winning. But it’s a great way to recognize other movies that might not have been noticed ’round Oscar nomination time. Would a small film like District 9 have been nominated before? Or a movie like The Blind Side that critics didn’t love so much? Would Up have only been nominated in the Animated category? It’s impossible to know for sure, but what we can know is who you think should win. (Academy, schmacademy — vote in our poll!
