Avengers Assemble? Twitter reacts as the Oscars look to honor popular movies

The Oscars are planning on rewarding the most popular movies, but why?

The release of Oscar nominations never fails to generate a firestorm each year. Pundits spend hours debating the biggest snubs and surprises before the event and then questions many of the choices made after.

Listen to the latest episode of the AIPT Movies Podcast!

The Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences will be making changes that may alleviate some of that talk. Though an exact date has not been given, the Academy announced on Wednesday the addition of a new category that honors achievement in popular film.

What exactly does this award entail? The Academy has not released any information regarding eligibility requirements, but the motivation behind the award is clear: the Oscars are looking to attract viewers.

With all the problems regarding rising prices for the theater going experience, continued incidents of sexual harassment, and the continued lack of diversity in Hollywood, it is nice to see the Academy has its priorities straight: rewarding the blockbusters that made billions of dollars.
