Inception and the oscars

Why is it that science fiction films don’t do well with awards? Ok, this year, pretty much everything has gone to the King’s Speech. Fine, it is a landmark film. I get it. But even so, sci-fi films just don’t win so much.

Now I can understand it when it is films where the special effects are more important than the story, but what about films like Inception and District 9? Inception was a great film with great concepts and performances too. As for District 9 it was incredible.
