1. A three-hour Oscars telecast

We are committed to producing an entertaining show in three hours, delivering a more accessible Oscars for our viewers worldwide.

To honor all 24 award categories, we will present select categories live, in the Dolby Theatre, during commercial breaks (categories to be determined). The winning moments will then be edited and aired later in the broadcast.

2. New award category

We will create a new category for outstanding achievement in popular film. Eligibility requirements and other key details will be forthcoming.

3. Earlier airdate for 92nd Oscars

The date of the 92nd Oscars telecast will move to Sunday, February 9, 2020, from the previously announced February 23. The date change will not affect awards eligibility dates or the voting process.

The 91st Oscars telecast remains as announced on Sunday, February 24, 2019.

Sad desperation for higher ratings.

We all know our boy Chrissie will be stuck in this stupid new category from now on, right?

Popular film category? Is money not enough?

So they literally just invented an Oscar to give to Black Panther so they can say it was the first blockbuster to get one of its kind?

Give me a break. Not to mention that not every award will be televised.

How do they even measure popularity? What category would films like Dunkirk, The Martian, Mad Max: Fury Road or Get Out be under?

I'm guessing it will just be reserved for comic book movies and action franchises like Fast and Furious?

But when is one of those able to bleed over into actual award consideration, such as The Dark Knight or Logan?
