You're absolutely right about it! It has been too many times the Academy robbed Hans of what he deserves (Gladiator, Crimson Tide, The Last Samurai). There are many people who are not yet convinced of the greatness of using electronic instruments and synthesizers, even though those instruments can create greater music that an orchestra could make. That's how and why Hans Zimmer and Jerry Goldsmith (Godspeed and rest in peace, Maestro!) were not rewarded very often. Jerry Goldsmith did lots of great scores as long as I can remember, but only won 1 Oscar in 16 nominations, and he was the first to introduce synthesizers and other electronic instruments in movie scoring. I also hope Hans will get his reward very soon and so as the Academy people understand that movie scoring has changed into something better for the XXI th Century.
