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


Other planned changes include the televised Oscars show being cut down to three hours (an hour shorter than usual). It also clocked it at almost four hours, making it the longest show in over a decade. This is likely to get out of the way of some of the other awards ceremonies that take place around that time.

I believe we must improvise, adapt and overcome everything that comes our way and there is no doubt that the world has changed around the Oscars. Though I described it as "Best Effects Driven Motion Picture" - instead they will offer up "Best Popular Film". - We're planning a more globally accessible, three-hour telecast.

When asked about the contract, Freeland said the government "looks forward" to hearing from Riyadh about the future of the deal. Local media also reported that Saudi Arabia had been instructed not to transfer its patients to Canada for medical treatment.

The Academy is definitely looking to make some changes, and appeal to a wider audience. Winning moments will be edited and later aired during the broadcast. "Eligibility requirements and other key details will be forthcoming". The earlier date will begin with the 92nd Oscars in 2020. They argue the change "will not affect awards eligibility dates or the voting process".

The 91st Oscars telecast remains as announced on Sunday, February 24, 2019.

The Academy Board of Governors has yet to reveal more information about what kind of achievement will be recognized and what qualifies as a popular film, and the Academy did not immediately respond to a request for comment. Even with this change it still can do that of course, but adding a new category just widens the net.

Bailey is the first cinematographer to be elected president of the Academy, made up of 9,000-plus members of the film industry that vote on the annual Oscars ceremony. Period. There's no need to put a "popular film" label on it. The MTV Movie Awards? Outstanding Achievement in Popular Film? This is a very bad idea. "Every single one was either nominated or won Best Picture with the exception of 'Snow White, ' which was given an honorary Oscar".
