Muckety mover - Oscar’s spread a little thin

Call it Oscar inflation.

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences announced Wednesday that the best-picture category will now include 10 movies instead of five.

Really? Ten potential best pictures?

There already have been years where the academy has had to harvest low-lying fruit. Remember Ghost? How about Babe?

“Having 10 best picture nominees is going (to) allow academy voters to recognize and include some of the fantastic movies that often show up in the other Oscar categories, but have been squeezed out of the race for the top prize,” said academy President Sid Ganis.

Translation: The academy is stepping up its marketing campaign for the movie biz.
