Perhaps some of the short-term memory loss will be remedied by the expansion of the category and we'll see films from outside that October-January Oscar bait window. Up might get a look-in, but perhaps the likes of The Hurt Locker and (at a stretch) District 9 will be recognised too?

What About The Directors Category?! - 1/9/2009 12:19:18 PM

I've yet to see anything on it, but will the Directors Category remain at just 5 nominations? If so, surely we'll be able to rule out at least half the Best Picture nominees once they're announced? There's usually one nominated director whose movie isn't nominated in the Picture category and they're always instantly ruled out. So assuming the same thinking remains, you're talking about 5 or 6 movies that haven't a hope. Although perhaps this new voting system (which I actually use with my friends in our prediction competitions!) will have an effect. Anyway, I'm rambling. Just thought it odd that there's been absolutely no talk about the Directors in regard to the Best Picture change.
