Would like to thank David S. for pointing this out. This changes a lot. A LOT! (We have more movies to debate about! More movies get an opportunity for oscar recognition! the months between march-august become more relevant!) ---> Will comedies, foreign, animation, and action flicks get more love? I don't see 10 dramas getting nods.
On the down side, 10 might be too much. Will the academy have to reach for the 9th and 10th spots (8th?)? In a given year, how often do we get 10 movies that are Oscar worthy? Some years we do, many years we don't.
