Could the new Oscar for “popular film” actually be a bad thing?
A whole new generation is discovering that they have long played a key role in advancing humanity’s frontiers.
The Oscars have never been a big deal to me. The few times I’ve caught the show on TV, it seems like a small group of people celebrating themselves. Of course, they’re famous, wealthy, and mostly white. As a teenager and a person of color, it’s never felt relevant.
