Oscars To Air All Awards Live After Backlash

After backlash from fans and industry professionals alike, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences has reversed a decision that would have seen the winners of four awards announced during the commercial breaks of the live broadcast.

The award announcements would then be edited down and displayed in a package later on in the broadcast in an attempt to shorten the length of the show.

Last year, the powers that be behind the show announced they were creating an all-new awards category for Outstanding Achievement in Popular Film, leading to speculation that the Academy had wanted a hand-out award for the most popular genre show of the year.
