    No, the Oscars should just keep things they way they are.

    Eh, I would rather see the Academy consolidate some categories instead of splitting/adding categories.

    Now,you people say it’s right to avoid un-worthy nominations and wins but don’t you think in a fair system and with fair nominees,it would be stellar.

    I am sure there are more than 5 comedy movies,pictures and performances that are more than stellar and are snubbed in favor of Drama movies.

    Drama and Comedy are 2 very very different genres and to compare them is a tragedy to be honest.

    It’s part of Oscar’s culture. Occasionally there are exceptions, but I am very optimistic that Oscar will grow into a more genre-tolerant entity.
    Wow that might sound crazy, but there it is.
    If categories are split, that’s a big community of film types.

    Best Director-Drama Best Director-Comedy or Musical

    Believe it or not, those categories actually existed at one point. They were only used once, for the 1st Oscars in 1929.

    They tried splitting Director into drama and comedy even before then. That’s probably not all.
