Just because someone want's to validate an actors ability with there Oscar and the other doesn't does not mean either is right or wrong in the matter
Popularity contest is partially it for sure, but it's like a case of "Not what you know but who you know" that dominates Oscar outcomes hence Penn over Rourke.
I honestly think there are too many question marks over the Oscars to use them to validate anything.
