I said this before: The biggest problem with films like The Green Hornet
and No Strings Attached
receiving nominations is that they would rob several worse, more deserving films of nominations. It happened twice in 2008
with Mamma Mia
and Crystal Skull
. I'd say it was a big deal then because Saw V
didn't get a nod for Worst PSRR. But if Drive Angry 3D
has to be included, I suppose that wouldn't be as bad as other such instances as long as Cage is still getting nominated for Season of the Witch
. We can't afford to see No Strings Attached
, The Green Hornet
, and Final Destination 5
, Arthur [remake]
, The Dilemma
, etc. of nominations for Worst Actor.

GTA, your point about not awarding good and average movies is valid. However:
1)If you prefer the 1-10 rating system, 5 is average, so 6 is average to good and 4 is average to bad.
2)If you prefer the 5 stars system, 30-49% = 2 stars.
So no matter how you put it, it's not that big deal to nominate movies with 40 something %, specially if it's not for Worst Picture.
