    I really think instead of having a Popular Film award, the Oscars should just be 75% academy members and 25% audience (at least with picture and performance awards) so that the nominees will truly be a mixed bag of critic faves and popular movies.

    Thoughts?

    I would rather never watch a movie again than have the audience start pushing studio garbage further down the Oscar pipeline.

    Sorry to be rude about it, but, yeah: if this is an excuse to get more billion dollar films into the BP lineup, along with their respective non-performances into the acting categories, no thanks.

    I think that would be a terrible idea. There is a reason why critics choice’s and people’s choice exist.

    Leonardo DiCaprio would have more Oscars and nominations then.

    First thing that pops in mind.

    What makes the Oscars prestigious is that they are a peer award, not a Harry from Hackensack award.

    Exactly. Oscars’ prestige comes from the fact that they are voted by the industry. General population voting for them just diminishes their reputation. Anyway, there already are multiple awards where people can award their faves.

    I wish it was like this. Lady Gaga would have deservedly won best actress. I wouldn’t have wanted to see either Black Panther or Bohemian Rhapsody win best picture though

    FYC:

    Chromatica: Album of the Year, Best Pop Vocal Album.

    Rain On Me: Song of the Year, Record of the Year, Best Pop Duo/Group Performance, Best Music Video.

    Alice: Best Pop Solo Performance

    I don’t understand the hate towards superhero films. These are films with very big budgets that goes on to gross billions of Dollars. At the end of the day, film making is still a business and the investors expect profit in every project they invest in. The fact that these films are commercial giants shows that the audience truly cares.
    <p style=”text-align: left;”>Even the Oscars is a business and that’s exactly why they’re seeking more viewers. Rewarding a film everyone got to see will surely give them more relevance than the popular tradition of rewarding obscure movies. They would have ended their game this year if they had awarded Roma. At least Green Book was a bit popular with the audience true it’s controversy and TIFF win. It also made over $300m worldwide. See how they failed to reward the amazing Avatar with a best picture win. Give the audience a little chance</p>

    So they become even worse than the Grammys (if that’s even possible) ? No
