This article first appeared in OscarWrap: The Race Begins “I really hope we have 10 nominees this year” is a phrase I’ve been hearing a lot lately in conversations about the Oscar race. The underlying assumption is clear: With the Academy’s system of variable nominations, in which we could have as few as five nominees for Best Picture or as many as 10, more good movies equals more nominees. Not true. Certainly, this is a good, maybe even a great year for movies. “Gravity” is a visionary delight. “12 Years a Slave” packs a staggering punch. “Captain Phillips” and “Rush” are thrilling. »
