So you're saying the Hannah Montana Movie has a chance?

The Academy is going to nominate 10 films this year for the Best Picture Oscar. Ten! Because that broadcast isn't nearly as long and self-indulgent as it could be.

These are for sound editing ALONE!!!

Apparently they used to do this back in the day, and since we're in the middle of The Great Depression: Version 2.0, Hollywood thought it would be fun to make it feel even more like the '30s. I'm not sure if this means more good movies or more crap will get Best Picture nods, but one thing's for sure: This will finally be the year that your "take a shot every time there's a montage or clip package" will give everyone at your party alcohol poisoning. Hooray for Hollywood!

Everybody's Fine
The Informant
The Lovely Bones
The Road
Shutter Island
The White Ribbon

I think it's a good thing. If they'd done this last year, you wouldn't have to hear me complain about how The Dark Knight was robbed.

Maybe now "The Watchmen" will get an Oscar nomination.

OK, maybe not.

At first I thought this was a terrible idea. I'm pretty sure it's still a terrible idea, but at least a comedy or an animated movie has a chance in hell of being nominated now.
