Boycott the Oscars.
Just because a movie is popular should not disqualify its nomination in any category.
Non-historical-themed movies should also have a fair chance at nomination as well as historical movies.
While the premise of a sleeper hit is nice, sometimes a movie gets the viewership it deserves in time.
Boycott the Oscars until the academy determines that a movie's popularity will no longer disqualify it from nomination in any Oscar category, and the academy keeps to this decision in the future.
There is no reason to watch the Oscars when a movie does not stand on its own merits as a story.
