Now that the Academy has upped the number of Best Picture nominees to ten and scrapped the old balloting system, why not really make things interesting? A commenter on a post over at Dave Poland's Hot Blog has a pretty terrific idea (via Kristopher Tapley): "They need to treat the nominees as a top 10 list and not 'nominees.' Then, structure the broadcast around the top 10 like American Idol, and gradually count down the vote tabs from #10 to #1 throughout the program to create suspense." You'd watch that.
