'Best popular' category no longer popular in Oscars

Sep 07, 2018 12:16 IST

The Academy Awards has decided not to introduce a new Oscar for "Outstanding achievement in popular film" amid widespread backlash. After the suspension of the category, which was set to be included in the 24 February 2019 awards show, Film academy president John Bailey said that the new category was well-intentioned in its efforts to reflect a changing industry but was misunderstood by its critics.
