Oscars add popular film category, sets earlier air date

Quentin Tarantino’s 5 Best Kills

In an effort to keep future ceremonies to three hours, the awards will be presented live and during commercial breaks. The body stated that the smaller awards will be presented during the telecast's commercial breaks, with the winning moments aired later in the broadcast. Others wonder if this is merely a way to throw the MCU and the Star Wars universe awards without actually considering them for "main" categories, like Best Actor or Best Picture. Bailey and Hudson said eligibility requirements will be determined at a later date. The 2019 Oscars will proceed as planned on February 24.

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

We are excited about these steps, and look forward to sharing more details with you. In addition, the board voted to limit the length of its annual awards show to three hours.




I know many will complain about the award wins not shown live.

Popular film? What is this? Obviously, this is the largest adjustment announced, and also the funniest.

Toward the first mission, a new category is being added for the 2019 kudoscast designed around "achievement in popular film". Many wrote that they hoped the category will be about stunt work. - We've set an earlier airdate for 2020: mark your calendars for February 9. This now marks February as the most exhausting month for those of us who enjoy sports, movies, and sex. The following year, the Artistic category was dropped and the Outstanding Picture victor, "Wings", was retroactively considered to be the night's biggest victor. It's a way for the Academy to include movies they probably wouldn't recognize in the first place (see: genre pictures). The Academy wants to turn that around understandably. It's a Participation Award for the general populous; a poo-pooing of popcorn/multiplex fare that actually keeps the industry alive. This decision will likely affect the timing of other awards, and the announcement of that year's Oscar nominees - no Hollywood agent is going to happily agree to cutting the time allotted for Oscar campaigns two weeks shorter. How about best fist fight? After that, however, expanding the Best Picture field has largely just meant adding more indies that no one's seen to the lineup.
