According to the president of the Academy, John Bailey, viewers will be able to recognize the winners in these categories through social networks.
The American Film Academy will present four Oscars during a commercial break. The decision affected the categories “Best Cinematography”, “Best Editing”, “Best Short Animated Film” and “Best Make-Up and Hair Style”.
According to the president of the Academy, John Bailey, it will be possible to find out about the winners of these nominations through the Academy’s social networks or on the official website. The full version of the Oscar and the speech of the laureates will be shown later in the broadcasts.
Rewarding during the commercial break is explained by the decision of the ABC channel to reduce the live broadcast to three hours and the general decline in the ratings of the show in recent years.
In the future, from four to six Oscar categories will fall under the similar “Abbreviation.” At the same time, the nominations that do not show this year will definitely be included in the Oscar 2020 TV airtime.
John Bailey added that the tradition of watching the Oscar award ceremony is changing rapidly, and the Academy also needs to develop, adhering to its main mission: to promote cinema throughout the world.
The 91st Oscar Awards will be broadcast on February 24 via ABC. In Russia, the live broadcast can be viewed on the website KinoPoisk.
