Academy adds ‘popular film’ category to Oscars
    2018-08-13  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

THE Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences is making room for the year’s biggest blockbusters to enter the Oscars race.

On Wednesday, the organization announced a number of impending changes to the Oscars, including its intention to add a new category for achievement in popular film.

The details regarding eligibility in this category have not been announced — and the Academy did not say when the change would take effect — but the new award’s purpose is clear: Make sure the box office’s biggest money makers have a chance to walk away with Oscars gold.

Films like “Titanic,” “The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King,” and “Forrest Gump” ruled the box office in their respective years and also earned best picture awards. But recent years have seen some of the year’s top-grossing films either earn awards solely in technical categories or get shut out of the Oscars completely. Last year’s best picture winner, “The Shape of Water,” earned US$63 million in the United States and topped out at No. 10 in box office rankings during its time in theaters.

Last year’s telecast hit an all-time low in ratings with just 26.5 million viewers, a drop of 20 percent from the previous year.
