Stars (for movie ratings) in color code to prevent cross-category comparing of scores

I'm trying to find a way to make everybody happy, so please don't swat this idea right off the bat but help me make it work somehow.

Since there is a controversy regarding the weighed score system and the new one in place I came up with an idea that might help to satisfy opponents of both sides: Blockbuster movies and low budget / unknown films could be judged in different categories. It could be done by simply giving the stars a different color. If there would be a color system in place then people would understand immediately the differences. Let's say the big blockbusters will keep the yellow stars. Smaller indie movies with low vote count could be red and short films could be blue. You can even add green for documentaries. I believe the proponents' main issue with the new scoring system is that now a lot of low budget movies and shorts have a higher score than some really great movies - but the color system will prevent comparing scores cross-category and should satisfy everybody's concerns.

What do you all think? :)
