The Oscars ceremony will be limited to three hours; some awards will be presented during commercial breaks; and a new category will be created for "outstanding achievement in popular film." And the date of the 2020 Oscars (for 2019 films) will be moved up two weeks, to February 9.

There are three types of people in the world, my friend: those who can add, and those who can't.

Hahahah

What is this, the MTV Movie Awards?

And now any ‘popular’ movie isn’t allowed to be ‘good’?

They only got Best Picture right once, anyways. And Shape of Water won last year lol. So this doesn’t come as much of a surprise

I assume you are referring to TITANIC.

They might want to reconsider the Best Picture versus Best Director Oscar too. History has shown it has very often been difficult to disentangle the two.

Auteur alert! ;)

I'm going to shamelessly quote myself in the concluding paragraph to my "Who Directed My Name is Nobody?" article in response to that:

Quote
In L’Abruzzo e il cinema, Leone notes with frustration that “I just wanted to be his consultant on the basis of the experience I had accumulated in cinema over many years” but that “only in editing did Tonino become more accepting”. Leone further refers to himself as “a producer of the old Hollywood style”; the implied creative responsibility is still reflected in the bestowal of the Academy Award for Best Picture to the producer rather than the director. This contrasts with the European practice, best epitomised by the Palme d’or at Cannes, where the honour is awarded to the director in accordance with the notion, introduced in Cahiers du cinéma in the 1950s, of the director as the “auteur” (author) of the film. It is fitting that a film shot in two parts across the United States and Europe, based on a thematic contrast between the American and Italian, or more broadly European, take on the Western, should have its ultimate accreditation similarly divided. Tonino Valerii was undoubtedly the director of this European (Italo-Franco-German) production, but Sergio Leone, in his classical American approach to production, was its auteur.
