Oscars participation trophies
Thought it might be interesting to discuss something other than the usual. I read that starting in 2024, the awards have added a number of qualifications for some of the award categories. I completely agree that for most of its history the awards have focused on a very narrow selection of individuals. I do find it puzzling and think it degrades all who could win an award if the award is forced to be based on something other than the "best" in a category. An analogy would be a painting by Da Vinci vs, a painting by his studio. Would you value it the same. Anyone have an opinion they'd care to share?
