    Oscars Add “Popular Film” Category

    The Oscars have added a new category for “outstanding achievement in popular film,” the Academy’s board of governors announced in a message to members of the Academy, as The Hollywood Reporter points out. The message continues, “Eligibility requirements and other key details will be forthcoming.” The letter also revealed that the broadcast’s runtime will be set at three hours, with only certain awards being televised. In addition, the 2020 Ceremony date has been announced for February 9. Next year’s Oscars will take place on February 24, 2019.

    Recently, the Academy invited Sufjan Stevens, Kendrick Lamar, Questlove, Chuck D, and more to to join the Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences’ music branch.

    The ones nominated in outstanding achievement in popular film, don't need to be nominated for an oscar. Those films have made shitloads of money and that's what they are made for no need to give prices for that. Let it be about quality

    As much as I wanted some popular films to get an award in the past (Harry Potter) I don't agree with the category. It just doesn't make sense to me.

    They haven't canceled it, but said like it needs to be discussed more. There's no doubt they will try to add some kind of popularity award next year as one of the reasons for "cancelation" was that it's not fair to add an award 3/4 into the eligibility season.

    To think that the first few awards were done in a private dinner event and now they're adding retarded categories just for the ratings (which will never rise again to the heights they were at because that's the reality of the current system). The problem isn't the categories it's the fact that the ceremony show itself is boring and not about the actual awards or winners. The past few ceremonies were more like SNL trying to make Oscars funny.

    If these Award shows want higher ratings they need to let people stream it from everywhere don't know why they are stuck in the past. Easy access for everyone a la Coachella. This is a way to be relevant again. No one watches TV anyway and they can earn money through advertisements. Most of the time it isn't even broadcasted outside of the US especially for Music Awards like Grammies

    This basically means Gaga will definitely be nominated for an Oscar (and probably win it).

    I want Glenn Close as well but it seems it will never happen.
    Mariah saved Xmas and Gaga is saving Pop and Hollywood.

    That would be sad, but sadly also think like you. Lady Gaga and others are so overhyped that she would have no chance. But Glenn will forever remembered for Dangerous Liasions or Fatal Attraction for example and others will be forgotten for sure.

    This is the first (of many) awards this season.

    It doesn't mean GaGa will probably win Best Actress.

    We have the Golden Globes, the Sag Awards, etc....

    Sounds like something they’d do. Great to see Toni get nominations too. I’d love Regina King to win something, haven’t seen the movie yet but she’s a phenomenal actress.

    It seems the awards are shunning Mary, Queen of Scots. Apparently Saoirse and Margot deliver excellent performances but are let down by the movie.
