An honest question to debate if you so choose...

After seeing the way most of the Oscars fell out last night, I was struck by a question, and wondered about the opinions of others who appreciate musicals on the big screen as much as I do.

The question's this...

If the Oscars changed the "Best Picture" to mirror the way the Golden Globes do things - "Best Drama" and "Best Musical or Comedy" you think this would improve the chances for films like "Phantom of the Opera" and the upcoming "Rent" movie to win awards?

I realize that Sir Andrew's sort of up the creek when it comes to Best Song awards, since most of the material went on the stage before it went to the big screen...but would such a change help the genre at all?
