I actually like the 10 nominee system because there are a hellova lot of movies out there and it does give exposure to a wide variety of films. This year we had two sci-fi films nominated, which would have been unheard of in the 5 movie system.

I don't hate Blind Side, I just think it's really bland and, save for the odd decent bit, kinda lame and there are certainly other films that could have been slotted in it's place for a nomination: (500) Days of Summer, the criminally overlooked documentary Anvil!: The Story of Anvil (which is about a metal band from Ontario, whoo!), Bad Lieutenant: Port of Call New Orleans, In the Loop, Moon, or heck, even Star Trek if they wanted to go all out and get a mainstream picture that fired of all cylinders. I would have even taken movies that I only have minor quibbles with: The Road or The Informant. As I said, it's hard to get too riled up about Blind Side, but there are a bunch instead that should have gotten in instead.
