The Academy Awards backtracks its plan to give an Oscar to the "Most Popular" film.

Officials have postponed their decision stating that implementing any new award nine months into the year would create challenges for films that have already been released.

More changes are schedule to come including honoring winners during commercial breaks.

Between six to eight awards will be presented during the breaks and will have their winning moments recorded, edited and aired later in the broadcast.

This move is in order to shorten the length of the show to three hours.

The Oscars will air on February 24, 2019.
