The Feinberg Feed – Oscar Race

Whether it was the swearing-in of the first black President of the United States, the continued decline of the economy, or the fall from grace of a once-beloved athlete, 2009 was certainly a year of change. The awards season was no exception, as the Academy expanded its best picture field to include 10 slots for the first time since 1943; moved the presentation of honorary Oscars from a segment of the Oscar show to a separate evening altogether; and now begins to deliberate between giving its best picture Oscar to a dramedy, sci-fi flick, or war pic, none of which have historically been its cup of tea.
