The Academy of Television Arts and Sciences said Wednesday that it plans to expand the number of nominees in several categories from five to six. It indicated that it was doing so because frequently the sixth-placed finisher received nearly as many votes as the fifth placed. The Academy is also changing the method for selecting the nominees. Previously, the entire membership would vote in each of the categories and the top contenders would then be appraised by a blue-ribbon panel, which would make the final choices.
Now they do it! After they went and screwed so many people for how long? How many times was a person or movie a surefire nominee only to blow your mind on nomination day by being excluded? I'm sure we would have seen Christopher Nolan and The Dark Knight had the Academy wised up sooner. Use the comment section and tell me about your most overlooked nominee.
