    Yesterday there was a new Oscar award category announced by the Academy for "Outstanding Popular Film". The new category hasn't been received very well by people. But, they are obviously looking to make a change with hip and younger audiences. In a new report from Variety , it has been revealed that the idea for the new changes and award category came from Disney-ABC. They explained: Days after the 90th Academy Awards telecast aired in March to record-low viewership, Disney-ABC Television Group executives met with leaders of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences to convey a...

    Disney is preparing to launch their streaming service by the end of 2019.

    Yesterday The Academy of Arts and Sciences announced a new award category at the Oscars. That award is the "Outstanding Popular Film" award, which will celebrate the movies that audiences really care about.
