20 Catchy New Categories We’d Like to See at this Year’s Oscars

If anything is apparent after the abysmal 2020 Oscar nominations, it’s that the Academy is in need of some fresh blood. The antiquated categories of Best Picture, Best Director, and Best Actor/Actress just aren’t going to cut it anymore. Modern audiences appreciate nuance, diversity, and a sense of humor in their award nominations and the Academy Awards are increasingly becoming irrelevant to younger generations. That’s why we’ve brainstormed 20 new categories we’d like to see at the Oscars and named the obvious winners of each (because Oscar voters are nothing if not lazy movie-goers). We hope the Academy takes note and incorporates some of them into next year’s ceremony.
