"Ten Best Pictures"

This business of having ten Best Picture nominees at the Oscars seems like a terrible idea. It means that the winning film from among the nominees could sneak through with extremely little support, and that tactical voting is going to become a paramount consideration. Clearly the goal here is to increase the quantity of films able to juice attendance by saying they were nominated, but if they want to make this switch they also need to reform the voting procedure to something with ordered preferences or something.
