Oscar’s to double Best Picture nominees

CNN’s reporting that the Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences is returning to the old form of having a large number of films nominated for Best Picture. Probably having something to do with the public outcry that You Don’t Mess With the Zohan was snubbed last year by not even being nominated, despite being critically acclaimed.

Hopefully  Matthew McConaughey’s envelope pushing, tear jerking, timeless love story Ghosts of Girlfriends Past is able to squeeze in there. With the increased nominees there’s little doubt in my mind that this is the year McConaughey FINALLY gets his due. Because any film that features Matthew McConaughey screaming “no” as he jumps THROUGH a groom at a wedding deserves some Oscar consideration.
