The Academy hasn't revealed the criteria for how films will get classified as "popular", or which awards it will scrap from the live broadcast to cut down on runtime, but it said "details will be forthcoming".
The U.S. television audience for the nearly four-hour Oscar ceremony in March 2018 was 26.5 million viewers, the smallest in awards' 90-year history. "That's what the Teen Choice Awards are for". So the Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciencesannounced some changes, including a new category: most popular film. Among the changes made were an earlier broadcast date (moving them from March to February), a cap to the length of the ceremony being three hours, presenting some awards during the commercial breaks and showcasing the winners in a montage during the night and, the most controversial, creating a Best Popular Film category. The Academy already has the Best Picture category.
The board reelected Bailey in a meeting held late on Tuesday; these changes were also regulated then.
The introduction to the "Best Popular Movie" category is a slap in the face to movie lovers everywhere. Meanwhile, historical dramas like "12 Years a Slave", "Argo" and "The King's Speech" have had little trouble scoring the Academy's premiere award in recent years. It has faced loads of backlash from the Academy's lack of diversity when it comes to the films nominated which at best has slightly (but not significantly) improved.
Many have taken to Twitter to criticize and express dismay over the Academy's decision to add the category in question, which some view as an excuse not to nominate critically acclaimed blockbusters such as Black Panther for Best Picture. Some reports have it debuting in 2020, while others seem to be sure that it will happen with next year's Oscars, so it remains to be seen just how it will affect this year's race, but as for the future, the addition of this pointless "participation badge" only highlights the Academy's lack of self-awareness and centuries-old mindset.
"Personally, I think the idea of a Popular Film category is laughable", Zanzie said.
