BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. — The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences has approved a change in the nominations process that will allow between five and 10 best picture nominees.

The board voted Tuesday to approve the change.

The number of nominees won't be announced until the best picture nominees are announced in January.

Ten best-picture nominations were announced for this year's and last year's Oscars. In previous years it was five.

Says retiring Academy Executive Director Bruce Davis: "If there are only eight pictures that truly earn that honor in a given year, we shouldn't feel an obligation to round out the number."
