Huge Changes Coming To The Oscars

A New Oscars Category Is on the Way as Academy Announces a Few Big Changes

The immediate concern over this new category is whether it will ensure that popular films which might at least had a chance to receive a Best Picture nomination will be shut out.

The Academy could have waited to see the impact on the best picture race from its push to diversify its membership, Willmore said.

In other words, the films moviegoers are actually paying to see. In the past, the Oscars have typically run well over 3 hours long. This will allow the Oscars to take place before rival awards shows.

Going forward, some awards will be presented during commercial breaks, with edited acceptance speeches broadcast later in the program. At this time, the specific categories haven't been determined.

The Academy also mentioned that the 2020 Oscars will be airing weeks earlier than usual on February 8.

Changes are coming to the Oscars, and it's all our fault.

For 2019, organizers are hoping to produce a "more accessible" three-hour show - by presenting some of the awards during commercial breaks, Academy president John Bailey and chief executive officer Dawn Hudson told members.

Sources told ESPN FC on Wednesday that while United were still pursuing a centre-back, but the chase has become problematic during the final hours of the window.

Edited excerpts of those presentations will then be shown during the broadcast.

An outstanding popular film category may also go some way to allay criticism that numerous films acknowledged by the Oscars are "increasingly irrelevant" and do not reflect what the viewing public want to watch.

LOS ANGELES-Faced with declining ratings for its annual awards telecast, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences said it will keep some prizes off the air and add a "popular film" category.

The board also announced it would bring forward the date of the 2020 Oscars ceremony to February 9 - about three weeks earlier than usual. They argue the change "will not affect awards eligibility dates or the voting process". However, the award will already be part of the 91st Academy Awards on February 24, 2019.

The changes are among the most drastic made to the program in recent years.

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.
