Oscars postpone plans for new popular film category

he organisers of the Oscars have announced they have postponed plans to introduce a new popular film category at their annual awards ceremony.

The award, which could have recognised films popular with audiences but not critics, was only announced last month.

In a statement, the Academy’s CEO said she had "recognised the need for further discussion" with its members about the proposal first.

It was set to be introduced at the 91st Oscars in February 2019.

The Academy recognized that implementing any new award nine months into the year creates challenges for films that have already been released, it said in statement.

Which films could win the new Oscar?

It also added that its board of governors would continue to discuss the matter, and will "examine and seek additional input regarding this category".

After its announcement, the category drew praise from the public on social media but received a backlash from some in Hollywood.

It was widely suggested the move was a bid to improve dwindling television audiences for the event, rather than recognising artistic merit.
