Should The Academy Wait Five Years to Award The Oscars?

The Motion Picture Academy seems to make many mistakes (just ask Martin Scorsese). We know that they obviously mean well, but does the art form of cinema just require more reflection? should they just wait five years to award the Oscars? We think perhaps they should.
