It's that time of the year again. It's time for the best of the year to be showcased and honored by the awards shows, culminating with the biggest and most historically respected ceremony of them all. The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences. And of course, like always, there's a lot to be discussed as to whether we should even care anymore.
However you cut it; the Academy does matter to a certain extent. They shine spotlights on movies and create some public interest in the films selected. On top of that, they also create a ripple effect for studios to let them know what kind of movies they're going to recognize at their award show, subsequently the studios will then make their movies in that nature thus dictating the way movies will be made in the future.
