The addition of a popular film category caused the most chatter Wednesday morning, as a clear effort to attract a larger audience by honoring bigger and more seen films.

In a letter to members of the Academy, the organization's board of.

The devil is in the details. It is not known which will be cut, nor what he eligibility criteria for the new popular film award will be.

-Next up, and this may be the most controversial choice, they want to create a new category: "We will create a new category for outstanding achievement in popular film".

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences has announced that the 92nd Academy Awards will air on February 9, 2020.

The declarations came in a request for a case-management hearing filed Tuesday by Jolie Pitt's attorneys in Los Angeles Superior Court.

The Academy's board of governors has also set an earlier date for the 2020 Oscars ceremony and will shorten the telecast to three hours in an attempt to make the ceremony "more accessible for our viewers worldwide". 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. Those categories haven't been determined, but there has been push-back in the past in awards-season shows (not just the Oscars) from below-the-line crafts wary of having their categories nudged off the main broadcast. It also clocked it at almost 4 hours, making it the longest show in over a decade. The date change will not affect awards eligibility dates or the voting process.

The Academy also mentioned that the 2020 Oscars will be airing weeks earlier than usual on February 8.

This complaint has already spawned some changes to the Academy's annual ceremony, most notably a decision in 2009 to expand Best Picture nominees from five to 10 in part because one of 2008's most acclaimed films, The Dark Knight, was left out of the Best Picture category that year. The dirty (not so) secret of the Academy Awards is that they've never really been a benchmark of excellence to begin with.

We are excited about these steps, and look forward to sharing more details with you.
