The folks behind the Academy Awards recently proposed the idea and quickly backpedaled on it. I still take the Oscars seriously, but the Academy Awards have slowly drifted to giving out no honors to almost anything mainstream especially after the 1990's. The recent notable films that made top honors at this year's Oscars, were stranger and dumber than years before. The idea of a separate category kind of makes a statement that almost no mainstream films (unless they really are "artistic") are even being considered for the real categories that matter.
Should mainstream films get back into the Oscars?
