OSCARS change their rules again!

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences has decided to change the rules for Best Picture nominees AGAIN! We can now have anywhere between 5-10 nominees. I really don't get their reasoning behind it, especially with the stellar lineup of 10 movies last year (and it seems like another solid year ahead). This is gonna be particularly problematic for awards season followers like me, as predicting nominees for possible fields of 5 versus 10 is a completely different game altogether. Take last year for instance, would "127 Hours" or "Winter's Bone" have recieved the required 5% of 1st place votes? I don't think so. In other changes, it's now possible to have only 2 nominees for Best Animated Feature! Ugh, make up your minds already!
