When it was first announced that the Academy Awards would be introducing a new category for Outstanding Achievement in Popular Film, film fans were notably irate. The new category was not just confusing but also potentially demeaning, implying that popular films (assumedly blockbusters, but I guess they could be anything, from romcoms to action movies) aren’t Best Picture fare. Personally, I think the only films nominated for popular films should be Vines.

Everyone knows Vines are excellent. They are immensely popular, yet decidedly experimental when you think about the fact that they’re seven seconds. We know a Best Picture nominee must be feature-length, but eligibility requirements for the popular film category have yet to be released. And so, I’m holding out hope.
