Well if it doesn't count for today's times, only the past...then I guess movies like LORD OF THE RINGS have been let in both 2002 and 2003's Oscars by mistake lol. "Fellowship of the Ring" was nominated for many oscars including best picture and won 4..."The Two Towers" is it's sequal and was also nominated and won oscars this yr in 2003...and no doubt "The Return of the King" will be nominated and win some also. Another includes "Star Wars Episode 1" which was nominated in 2000 (lost to "The Matrix" that yr), and it's sequal "Star Wars Episode 2" got nominated this yr.
So sequals in today's society can be nominated and indeed win if they are worthy in the AMPAS's eyes and judgement, who sometimes pick the wrong winners may I say...and let pathetic films such as "chicago" win rather than "The Two Towers" which was a much greater film in my opinion...and there are other films worthy of wins that didn't.
