Only 9 Best Picture Nominations: What Was Number 10?


There were only 9 Best Picture nominations. So what was the 10th biggest vote getter– but not with enough votes to qualify? Everyone’s going to want to know that answer. My guess is “Best Exotic Marigold Hotel,” which did receive a SAG nomination for Best Enssemble. Runners up might be The Master, The Sessions, Skyfall, and Flight. We will probably never know. But it’s a shame the Academy simply didn’t include a 10th nominee just to round out the list!
