Exactly. If the Academy wants to honor films they, and not the public, deem worthy, I say more power to them - these are *their* awards after all. But they shouldn't then complain that fewer and fewer people are watching the actual awards show every year.
I think the only people worried about the ratings are the network and the producers of the awards show; I'm pretty sure the average Academy member who actually votes doesn't give a crap about the ratings.

Personally, I'm fine with them nominating lesser known films. Do you really want to see the Oscars turn into the People's Choice Awards and have Transformers: Dark of the Moon be nominated for Best Picture?
