Every year at the Oscars, the same type of movies are nominated and win in the Best Picture category. As of 2018, there have been 546 nominees and 90 winners for the Oscar Best Picture award. Even though, most movies are classified in multiple genres, creating even more opportunities to qualify, the Oscar Best Picture category has a very homogeneous feel. Entire movie genres are often overlooked with a limited number of nominations and even fewer wins over the past half century, despite thousands of chances to qualify.

Which movie genre is most deserving* of better representation in the prestigious Best Picture Oscar category with both more nominations and more wins? *final answer option: none of the above
