Will Oscars Highlights badges for older years (pre-2005) ever be added?

I love the Oscars Highlights badges: http://www.imdb.com/badge/ However, only ceremonies starting from 2005 are present.
Will there ever be badges for older ceremonies (pre-2005)?
I would be willing to help create the missing lists for the older ceremonies as I study the Oscars.

If IMDb would create Oscar badges for all years, the number of badges would become - IMHO - way too much. I therefore think they should change to Oscar decade badges. If you've seen all films that have won the Best Film - Best Actor - Best Actress - Best Writing - Best Director Oscar from a certain decade, you'd get that badge.
That way, all Oscar years will have a badge without having over 80 (!) badges.

I honestly don't see a problem with having that many badges. It's really just a display problem with the site in that it doesn't allow any sort of grouping. They could group the badges by decades and then let you expand them to see which ones you do and don't have.

If the badges could be grouped, I'd see less of a problem with having over 80 Oscar badges, but the way it is now, I think it would really clutter a users page (and I don't think the grouping of badges will be possible anytime soon). Note that below all the badges is also information regarding the user. With near to a hundred badges in some cases, that would mean a lot of scrolling to that data if the badges couldn't be grouped.

It would be easy to IMDB's analyst programmers to modify the display. And through the years will be increase at least 2 badges for oscar and top 250. I think the display can me modify to show a "pocket badge" and include more badges to do different challenges (more oscar, emmys, etc). But today we only have Oscar since 2006 and top 250 since 1996 (i'am doing both now) But I created lists to do Oscar highlights and Foreign Lanugague winner once I complete all badges
