Oscars change-up: 5-10 nominees

I am bored with it already:
The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences announced late Tuesday night that it had approved a change in the nomination process that will allow between five and 10 best picture nominees. On the recommendation of its Board of Governors, the number of the category's nominees will be dictated by the voting.

A film will need a minimum of 5 percent first-place votes to be nominated for best picture.

"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."

Read the story.
