How did horrible image quality become so popular?

Nowhere can you find more abhorrent and dilettante videography today than in professional computer animation. Cheap lenses with extreme chromatic abomination (pardon, "aberration"), total disregard for light sources causing a grotesque orchestra of different kind of lens flares all over the place, and often not even bothering to clean a dirty lens before filming.
Furthermore, suddenly everybody wants to be a filmer, even when they're not even holding a camera. (I have no idea how they're capturing the footage. Cybernetic eye implants maybe? Based on the character of the lens flaring, I'd say unlikely.)
