Academy Postpones Awards For Film Category.


The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences  Film Category  has decided not to go ahead with its proposed new 'popular film' Oscar category in next year's awards ceremony.
The proposal, announced just a month ago, that met with a backlash from the movie industry and film reviewers, who said it would create a two-tier system of 'popular' and 'unpopular' films.

Changes to the 91st Oscars include restructuring and shortening the length of the telecast to three hours. To honour all 24 award categories, six to eight categories will be presented live, in the Dolby Theatre, during commercial breaks.

The winning moments will then be edited and aired later in the broadcast. Selected categories will be rotated each year. The Academy will collaborate with the show producer(s) to select these categories.

The 2019 Oscars ceremony will take place in Los Angeles on February 24.
Also the 2020 Oscars are moving to an earlier date on the calendar. Instead of taking in the end of February, the 92nd Oscars will be held on February 9, 2020.
