Mia, who has starred in handful of horror movies, including the most recent Pearl and Infinity Pool, opened up in a new interview with Jake Hamilton during a Q&A.
"I think that it's very political and that it's not entirely based on the quality of a project per se," Mia theorized about The Academy's decision to look over the horror genre.
She went on, saying that "I think there's a lot going on there, a lot of cooks in the kitchen when it comes to nominations and categories that are recognized. Maybe I shouldn't say that either but I think that's true. I think a lot of people know that. I don't know why."
Mia does hope that change is on the way in regards to it.
"I think a change is necessary," she said. "A shift should take place, really. If they wanted to engage with the wider public, I think it would be of benefit, really."
