Oscars 2020 Airdate Announced and Changes Teased by AMPAS
09 August, 2018, 13:26
Last night, the Board of Governors met to elect new board officers, and discuss and approve significant changes to the Oscars telecast.
The legendarily lengthy Oscars telecast will also be shortened, which means certain awards will not be presented during the live broadcast - another major break with Academy Awards tradition. Luckily, every now and then, they make moves that show that they're kind of listening (though after having the lowest-rated Academy Awards showing a year ago, they kind of have to, right?).
"Eligibility requirements and other key details will be forthcoming", Mr Bailey and Ms Hudson said in the letter.
The new 2020 air date moves the telecast from a previously announced date later in the month.
Australia's Logie Awards wrestle with a similar issue, in that they have two groups of categories, one voted by the audience, and the other voted by juries of industry professionals. 91st Oscars telecast is now scheduled for Sunday, February 24, 2019.
It is the latest attempt by the Academy to remain, in the words of its leadership, "relevant in a changing world", and to maintain its position as the premier awards ceremony for excellence in film.
The Academy Board of Governors has yet to reveal more information about what kind of achievement will be recognized and what qualifies as a popular film, and the Academy did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
We are excited about these steps, and look forward to sharing more details with you. In the past, the Oscars have typically run well over 3 hours long. Let us know down below! And what criteria will be used to determine whether a film qualifies as "popular?" All of this will be put into effect for the 91st Academy Awards next February, where Marvel fans will no doubt be campaigning for Black Panther to land the ultimate prize. But they've sought to address it, in years past, by zipping through the technical awards (which are held and taped days before the main Oscars telecast) and hectoring presenters to keep their acceptance speeches pithy. So if they're classified as "popular" films, will they also be eligible for Best Picture? Regardless of whatever "criteria" they end up outlining, the AMPAS might as well just slap a dollar sign on the trophy's forehead and call it "Most Money Earned" (or "Best Cape"). Years ago, popular blockbusters like Star Wars, Raiders of the Lost Ark, E.T. The earlier date will begin with the 92nd Oscars in 2020.
What do you think about the changes in the Oscars?
The Academy also announced that, due to falling ratings, future broadcasts will not be any longer than three-hours (last year's show clocked in at nearly four hours).
And it turned out that many people hadn't even heard of the movies in question, let alone seen them. This year's Best Picture victor, The Shape of Water, made a solid $63 million at the USA box office, but this was in huge contrast to the enormous success of movies such as Star Wars: The Last Jedi, Wonder Woman, and Spider-Man: Homecoming, none of which were featured in the main categories.
