The Oscars are adding a new category to honour popular films and promising a shorter three-hour ceremony. In addition, the awards ceremony will air at a much earlier date in 2020. The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences Board of Governors met last night to approve the three major changes.

Eligibility requirements for the new popular film category will be announced soon. Ratings for the 90th Academy Awards fell to an all-time low of 26.5 million viewers, down 19 per cent from the previous year and the first time the Oscars had fewer than 30 million viewers in ten years. It also ran nearly 4 hours, making it the longest show in over a decade. The 2019 ceremony will air February 24th, while the 2020 version will move to February 9th.
