    I do not think it is impossible to say that before the #metoo and #OscarsSoWhite movements a genre film such as “Get Out” would not have won an Oscar. To be honest it is not delusional to even think that it would not have been nominated for one.

    I do not want to read about what you actually think of these movements or the movie “Get Out”, because all these are too subjective and this topic is not about those opinions. I’m wondering if you think that the approach of the Academy to the genre films will help for films such as “Hereditary” or “A Quiet Place”. I understand that “Get Out” was an important movie for Hollywood because of racial issues and social critique, but I still think that “Get Out” will help other horror films to shine brighter. if that does not happen, it would be sad and it would question me whether the love towards “Get Out” was about the movie or the subject matter (of course this is difficult to separate). I mean Toni Collette’s performance is critically acclaimed in “Hereditary” and “A Quiet Place” is one of the most raved films of the year. Both films should be strong contenders for Academy Awards nominations.

    The thought has crossed my mind. I hope it meant more mainstream movies that deserve consideration getting their time in the Oscar limelight.

    We live in a new era of filmmaking and Oscar voting.

    More unconventional stories are being nominated or winning MAJOR categories.

    Gone are the days of obvious, Oscar bait films like “The King’s Speech”…hopefully!
