The award "Oscar" will be presented in new ways

  • The Oscars’ new ‘popular film’ award proves it’s out-of-touch and elitist

In the 90 years of the Academy Awards, only three animated films have received nominations for Best Picture: Beauty & the Beast, Up, and Toy Story 3.

It's already clear, however, what the goal of this award is: give blockbuster pictures a chance to walk away with their own Oscar trophies. "Otherwise known as the white people's choice awards".

Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences president John Bailey who is serving his second announced this the creation of a new category being designed around achievement in popular film.

"How can the Academy define what's "popular"?" Among the changes made were an earlier broadcast date (moving them from March to February), a cap to the length of the ceremony being three hours, presenting some awards during the commercial breaks and showcasing the winners in a montage during the night and, the most controversial, creating a Best Popular Film category.

In the world of cinema, there is no honor bigger than getting an Oscar. "If a movie is truly great, then it should be eligible for Best Picture". The Dark Knight is an example of a blockbuster hit robbed of a Best Picture nomination which led to the Academy increasing the number of nominees in the Best Picture category from five to ten.

It's easy to see why the struggling Academy Awards would be interested in carving out space for popular fare like superhero movies. Meanwhile, historical dramas like "12 Years a Slave", "Argo" and "The King's Speech" have had little trouble scoring the Academy's premiere award in recent years. All of this comes on the heels of a very successful year for Disney, with Black Panther garnering near-universal acclaim for its empowering message and tackling the complex issue of globalism with considerable thought and care. Not to be confused with the "Best Picture" award, the additional category is causing quite the uproar on social media.

"Personally, I think the idea of a Popular Film category is laughable", Zanzie said. This year's telecast, hosted by Jimmy Kemmel, which was nearly four-hour long, dropped to an all-time low of 19 percent from the previous year to just 26.5 million viewers, according to the Hollywood Reporter.
