Oscars: Academy to add achievement in popular film category

In addition to announcing the new category, the Oscars said the telecast will be "more globally accessible" and that the 2020 ceremony will take place earlier in the year on February 9.

The changes were revealed in a email from John Bailey, the new president of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, sent to members on Wednesday.

In an effort to keep future ceremonies to three hours, the awards will be presented live and during commercial breaks. Some awards will be presented live while others will be given out during the commercial breaks and edited into clips to be shown later.

Starting with the 92nd Academy Awards in 2020, a new Oscar will be awarded for achievement in popular film. "The new category will be introduced this coming year, at the 91st Oscars". The annual awards show usually runs over three hours, with the longest show clocking in at four hours and 20 minutes minutes in 2002. Bailey and Hudson said eligibility requirements will be determined at a later date.

There are some big changes in store at the Oscars.

Firefighters in California gain ground on deadly Carr Fire
Mr Veverka, 34, said: "Right now, it's pretty much guaranteed we'll go from fire to fire to fire, until everything is out". Jerry Brown said Wednesday that fires have become the new normal in California due in large part to the changing weather.

That move came after outcry accompanied the Academy's perceived failure to nominate "The Dark Knight" and "WALL-E" for the top award, instead favoring "Frost/Nixon", "Milk" and "The Reader". And some Oscar-watchers wonder why there are no categories for stunt coordination or casting. They're scooching up the broadcast a couple weeks earlier in February - but not until the 2020 telecast. The Oscars should be about celebrating movies, not wooing viewers to a telecast, and these changes do serious harm to the Academy's reputation. Leadened with below-the-line category award presentations for accomplished pros that Oscar's global audience was completely unaware of, who then thanked love ones that the world at large was even less aware of, Oscar struggles in the ratings ever year, despite the cleverness of hosts like Jimmy Kimmel or Hugh Jackman.

We are excited about these steps, and look forward to sharing more details with you. Next year's Oscars, however, will still air on Sunday, February 24.

Popular film? What is this? This is a very bad idea. However, a Best Picture win for a blockbuster is not unheard of.

While we're at it, let's get more categories added and go full blown MTV Movie Awards up in this motherfucker. Outstanding Achievement in Popular Film?
