84th Oscar Best Picture Updates Post Rule Change (2011-2012 Awards Season) (7/4/11)

Here are today’s rankings for the 84th Oscar Best Picture race, with previous ranking shown in parenthesis after each entry.

These predictions reflect the new rule change from AMPAS, who believes it will be more fun to keep us guessing at how many nominees there will be. Luckily I’m always up for some fun, so I’ll play along!!! My predictions have always been ranked, but now I have added my best guess at how many films will meet the new 5% rule. I’m currently predicting that 7 will hit that mark, and hope that I’ve found a simple way to reflect that in the formatting of this list.
