Hollywood´s attempt to bully the Best Picture category into accepting their crappy product is pretty laughable. Going with 10 Best Picture nominees allows the studios to go around the "problem" of too many foreign members of the Academy. Now, every Ron Howard film can be nominated! And all the big action films too! Maybe Michael Bay can win an Academy Award! I´m sure the next step for the studios will be to buy the award with steak dinners and free showings after their films get nominated.

I hope the increasingly respectable membership of the Academy tell the studios to go to hell and nominate Summer Hours for best picture instead.
