Well, that's kind of the point: The Oscars lacks certain categories that cause some otherwise great films to be left out in the cold. I'm not even pretending to say that Infinity War should be up for Best Picture, but there are some phenomenal action movies or comedy movies that go entirely unrecognized by the Academy in most cases.

What you call "participation trophy", I call "steps towards recognizing good or great films that aren't just Oscar Bait".
