They also said some unspecific things about improving diversity as you might expect https://www.hollywoodreporter.com/race/ ... es-1298089

I think compared to 2016 the outrage mob just be in a “give people awards cause they’re black” mindset this year (not realizing that in fact is racist and demeaning). Spike Lee for Best Director for Da 5 Bloods? And can black people go 4/4 in the acting categories? (as I tried to joke in the other thread)

Spike might actually deserve best director this year. Da 5 Bloods has a budget of "$30-40m" and looks as good as any big budget blockbuster about war.

I don't like ten nominees though. Eight is the perfect number, but I also liked the uncertainly, the fact that you had to cross a voting threshold beyond being more popular than whatever is ranked at #11.

Yeah the uncertainty was better but I guess it didn't sit well with a lot of fans of popular movies

They did it for diversity reasons. Some movies like Straight Outta Compton and Beale Street might have gotten in with 10 for example.

Yeah read that again and it looks like this is to add more "black" movies. Agreed that Academy is just going racist route here.

Lol they should've never changed it to more than 5. It's obvious each year which are the 'lucky to be here' ones. It has hugely devalued the prestige of receiving a Best Picture nomination.

The original reason was for ratings purposes after The Dark Knight and Wall-E got snubbed, but ratings have tanked anyway since no one watches TV anymore and they refuse to stream it live via Netflix.

False. The Dark Knight snub was the catalyst to expanding the pool.
