More often than not, the biggest films of the year are shut out from the main award categories, with the exception of the technical categories like makeup and special effects.
The requirements aren't known just yet, though we assume it will be to integrate films that are more popular with the buying public rather than exclusively the critics. It's not clear when the new award category will be rolled out.

Again, it's important to note that we know very little right now about exactly how this category will work, who will be eligible (popular films can be low-budget indies that caught fire at the box office, too), and how the award will be framed in the overall telecast. Details on eligibility have yet to be announced.
