Best Picture Category Expansion – The Feinberg Feed


In this week’s installment of “The Feinberg Feed,” Scott revisits the debate about the expansion of the best picture category from five nominees to ten nominees. He says that time has proven that there are not only more than five films worthy of a best picture nomination this year (many contended there would not be), but there are actually more than ten!

He introduces 10 films that were not nominated for best picture but that he feels would have been worthy of that distinction. They include a few films that have been forgotten due to early release dates (“Adventureland” and “Is Anybody There?”), a few films that didn’t have adequate studio resources to compete for awards season attention (“The Messenger,” “Bad Lieutenant: Port of Call – New Orleans,” and “Big Fan”), a Meryl Streep star-vehicle (“Julie & Julia”), a romantic-comedy that he describes as a modern-day “Annie Hall” (“500 Days of Summer”), and three movies from The Weinstein Company (“A Single Man,” “The Road,” and “Nine”).

Do you disagree with Scott’s picks and/or have others to suggest? Please leave your thoughts in the comments section of this post, and be sure to check back next week for Scott’s post-mortem of the 82nd Academy Awards.
