    There have been more than 500 films in theaters this year. Of those, 248 have been deemed to be officially eligible to win Hollywood's biggest prize. Needless to say, the criteria at this point are strictly a matter of math and the calendar, with quality not yet being part of the equation.

    To make the cut a film must first be shown in a theater, open by midnight, Dec. 31, and start a run of at least seven days. To be deemed a feature-length film, it must be at least 40 minutes long and be shown on 35mm or 70mm film, or in a qualifying digital format.

    The field of 248 Best Picture hopefuls will be whittled down to 10 when all the nominations are announced Jan. 25, with the winner being crowned Feb. 27.

    Here's the complete list of films currently in the running:
