The American film Academy has decided to establish a new nomination of the award “Oscar” – “Best popular cinema”, and also to reduce the TV version of the ceremony to three hours. About it reports Reuters with reference to the letter of the Academy.
According to representatives of the Council, they will create a new category for outstanding films. While there is no information about the selection criteria, it is reported that they will be announced later.
In addition, the presentation of the least popular categories of “Oscar” will not be televised that would reduce the time of the ceremony in the air.
It is noted that the 92nd awards ceremony will be held on February 23 2020, as previously reported, and February 9, to get ahead of other film awards. The organizers said that the date of the 91st ceremony will remain the same and will be held on 23 February 2019 in Los Angeles.
As previously reported, critics called the main applicants for “Oscar-2019”.
Recall that in 2018 the ceremony took place on March 4. The best film version of the American film Academy has become a fantasy Thriller from Guillermo del Toro “Form of water”.
