Brooklyn Decker in 'Battleship' Looks Skeptical
The Academy names 282 films eligible for the Best Picture Oscar. Guidelines for eligibility include a commericial motion picture release in Los Angeles by midnight of December 31, and a minimum seven-day theatrical run. Per Academy rules, a motion picture must also have a runtime of more than 40 minutes, and be exhibited in 35mm, 70mm or a qualifying digital format.

The Oscar nominations will be announced on January 10. In the meantime, check out the extensive "Reminder List of Eligible Productions" here, a handful of which you will continue to hear about on Oscar Talk, our Predictions Chart and beyond for at least another two months.

If someone wants to champion the likes of less-talked-about-but-still-eligible films -- "Battleship" or "One for the Money" to name a few -- you best get busy.

    If "Battleship" is nominated for Best Picture, a small part inside of me will die. However, what I will also do is begin shooting my drama/action screenplay: "UNO". Where transformers come to earth and must be the first to get rid of all their cards, to save the world!
