  • The Oscars Will Be Adding A New Category To Honor ‘Popular’ Movies

The ceremony will also be shortened in length and will take place on an earlier date, effective in 2020.

Essentially, with these changes, the Oscars are looking to become more like the MTV Movie Awards, and that's a damn shame.

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. - We've set an earlier airdate for 2020: mark your calendars for February 9.

A three-hour Oscar telecast.

In a statement from Academy president John Bailey and C.E.O.

In a letter to members of the Academy, the organization's board of.

We are committed to producing an entertaining show in three hours, delivering a more accessible Oscars for our viewers worldwide. Now the Oscars will take a page from the Tony Awards playbook by announcing some of the categories during commercial breaks.

Additionally, he said, USA monthly figures for production fell in May, suggesting output may be curbed later in the year. FBN's Connell McShane talks to Fasken Oil and Ranch's Rich Culbertson about the drilling process in the Permian Basin.

All jokes aside, here's another thing that rubs this writer the wrong way about the new "Popular Film" category: it's inherently condescending toward whatever ends up winning that year. There are no other details available about the award yet, including eligibility information, but the change is part of a continued effort by the Academy to keep the Oscars "relevant in a changing world".

This change passed the voting process, which signifies how important it is to make the Oscars broadcast more appealing to a wider range of viewers.

It's among three changes approved on Tuesday by the Academy's board of governors. Sure. Will it mean as much if it's in a special category that some fans view as a consolation prize that lessens the impact of the blockbusters while also potentially dulling the shine on the Best Picture category?

In order to fit all the awards into the new 3-hour timeslot, certain awards will be presented during commercial breaks.

- Atlee Northmore (@southless95)I hope you will still telecast ALL categories including shorts. It wasn't specified whether it would be added for the 91st Academy Awards this February. And what criteria will be used to determine whether a film qualifies as "popular?" Outstanding Achievement in Popular Film? This is a very bad idea. And that's saying a lot since you awarded Best Picture to Crash.
