Oscars reveal diversity requirements for best picture nominees

Aimed at diversity, the Oscars are raising the inclusion bar for best picture nominees starting with the awards in 2024. The Academy laid out eligibility reforms to the best picture category intended to encourage diversity and equitable representation on screen and off, addressing gender, sexual orientation, race, ethnicity and disability.

Doesn't this lessen the significance of the Oscar and in turn make it even more problematic? I mean a brilliant black actor like Morgan Freeman or Lupita Nyong’o winning the award now will always carry a hint of "maybe they are just getting it because of the rules" now won't it? And whenever a white person wins, it will even more be considered as "the most deserving win" because despite the rules he/she has won the award.
