While it is true you can't always judge a book by it's cover, a good percentage of the time you can judge whether or not something is up your alley by reading a plot synopsis. Maybe I even would enjoy the movie, but not being interested is not the same thing as giving a judgement.
Even so, you should stop saying absurd crap like "they ignore comedies" when the movie that won the most oscars is a comedy.
I appreciate your cursory googling but this more or less demonstrates what I'm saying and "low brow" classics are not considered for awards. 18 awards for horror in 92 years is not really demonstrating that they think there is much worth highlighting in the genre. It'd be kind of absurd if they didn't recognize any in almost 100 years of course, but again this just speaks to the fact that I'd be much more interested in a consumer's choice awards.
Maybe because horror movies are usually lower budget and don't attract incredible actors? The Conjuring, one of the best horror movies in the past 20 or 30 years, wouldn't win an oscar, it's just not that good.
BTW even thinking Marverik and Túr are better movies than Everything Everywhere All at Once... their choice is not bad at all because Everything Everywhere All at Once is really great and actual... few movies can have the strong impact it has and to be fair most comedies don't.
I think that the movie is so out there, so creative, so different, that it deserved the accolades. I just don't agree with Jamie Lee Curtis getting the Oscar, Angela Bassett deserved it way more.
