Read recently that the Academy is considering adding a "popular" best movie category to the Oscar awards due to declining numbers. One look at the movie listings (especially in the summer) tells it all. The dumbing-down continues with superhero flicks, etc. I like a good escapist action movie at times, but seriously, that's why they have People's Choice (pop music, kids' films) Awards. Shorten the show certainly, but don't dumb it down. No way should The Rock be the highest paid "actor" in the business. If they must add the category, lump all the "popular" movies together so the tenth Batman whatever movie won't win over a well-written, well-acted drama like Three Billboards...
