The Rules Have Changed! Oscars Will Now Feature 5 To 10 Best Picture Nominees!

oscars to feature five to ten best picture nominees

Listen up, filmmakers! You're gonna have to EARN your place in the Best Picture category from here on out.

While the 10 nominees for Best Picture have been pretty solid for the past two years, films are going to have to be EVEN better to make the cut, because according to new rules, there will now be 5 to 10 nominees each year.

Another notable change is that the Best Animated Feature category will feature four nominees in years with 13 to 15 qualifying films…although this doesn't really matter as long as Pixar continues to make films. Ha!

Here's what retiring Academy executive director Bruce Davis had to say about the Best Picture category changes:

“In studying the data, what stood out was that Academy members had regularly shown a strong admiration for more than five movies. A Best Picture nomination should be an indication of extraordinary merit. If there are only eight pictures that truly earn that honor in a given year, we shouldn’t feel an obligation to round out the number.”

We absolutely agree with this! Good job, Academy! Keep the bar set high!

What do U think about the Oscars' new Best Picture rules?
