Drake has unveiled a $5,000 winter jacket. Why is it 5 grand? Well it is made with only the finest materials for winter wear.
Exclaim reports the jacket includes: buffalo leather, goose down, a silk-lined interior, a removable fox fur trim and 24-karat gold plated hardware. Yes, we said gold! The jacket was made in partnership with Canada Goose.
$5,000 for a winter jacket is insane. And really, do you want a gold plated jacket when you are walking around in the slush?
The Academy Awards will now allow between five and 10 best picture nominees, reports CTV.
The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences announced yesterday that the number of nominees will be dictated by voting. In order to be nominated, a film will need a minimum of 5 per cent first-place votes.
In 2009, the Oscars expanded the best picture nominees from 5 to 10, but now, the number of nominees has been changed again after analyzing the voting from the last two years.
Retiring Academy executive director Bruce Davis recommended the change, saying:
“In studying the data, what stood out was that Academy members had regularly shown a strong admiration for more than five movies,” said Davis. “A best picture nomination should be an indication of extraordinary merit. 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.”
The unknown number of nominees will add a new sense of mystery to the awards too, as filmmakers don’t know how many spots they are vying for. The nominations for the 84th annual Academy Awards will be announced January 24.
I personally think 10 was too much, so I like this idea. Nominate as many movies that deserve it, not just because they need 10 spots. Hopefully this means the award show will be shorter, too, as less people are nominated.
