There is an ongoing joke about the Oscars (especially since they went to a 10 Best Picture category show)
Who has even seen most of these movies!?
Well, in an effort to make more of us watch, they are making changes. As of 2019, there is a new category; “Best Achievement In Popular Film.” Meaning… MI:6 or Deadpool 2 for example could get in on the action. The ratings for last years show was the lowest ever. They also say they are ‘taking steps’ to shorten the show, including filming less of the award categories.
