The Oscars Will Present These Four Awards During Commercial Breaks

It’s no secret that the Oscars has been undergoing some change in recent years. In a world that seems increasingly disinterested in the types of movies they celebrate, they’ve been working to try and shift things around to try and increase the ratings. One way they’ve been hoping to do that has by cutting down its runtime.

Well, the Academy has revealed one way they will be doing that. According to THR, there are four categories that will now be presented during commercial break, and those are Best Cinematography, Best Film Editing, Best Live-Action Short, and Makeup and Hairstyling. The reveal came via group membership email on Monday.

Academy president John Bailey stated that while these four awards would be presented off-air, they will still be “honoring th achievements of all 24 awards at the Oscars.”

“With the help of our partners at ABC, we also will stream these four award presentations online for our global fans to enjoy, live, along with our audience. Fans will be able to watch on and on the Academy’s social channels. The live stream is a first for our show, and will help further awareness and promotion of these award categories.”

So what do you think? Does not presenting the award during the TV broadcast lessen the pomp and circumstance surrounding these categories? And do you think it’ll make the show a little more tolerable in terms of length? Let us know your thoughts down below!
