Re: The Academy: on the losing side of history?
Your entire premise is flawed here. You aren't open to the possibility that an Academy voter could very much like one of the movies you claim is average, or boring, or not top 20 worthy. You disagree with them, so they're wrong. That's the essence of your argument here. To give your stance credibility you simply state your opinions on various films. Now, I mostly agree with your opinions, but that doesn't equate to you being right and them being wrong. Or really tell us anything about what the Oscars are about other than that you disagree with their choices.
And of course the Osacrs are subjective. Human beings are voting on art! There's going to inevitably be a ton of disagreement on what is better than what. And that's perfectly fine because the Oscars shouldn't be looked at as some objective barometer of movie quality. Nothing should, because that doesn't exist.
