The Academyalso plans to set an earlier air date for the Oscars in 2020 - February 9 - and will be making that broadcast more "globally accessible". "Eligibility requirements and other key details will be forthcoming", they wrote.
We are excited about these steps, and look forward to sharing more details with you. While the Board of Governors probably hoped the fresh category would excite viewers and perhaps get those ratings up - spoiler alert - Hollywood pretty much hates it.
An outstanding popular film category may also go some way to allay criticism that numerous films acknowledged by the Oscars are "increasingly irrelevant" and do not reflect what the viewing public want to watch.

Changes are coming to the Oscars, and it's all our fault.
Stephen King’s Top Horror Movie Adaptations
Ms Fisher's plea to let the winners be allowed to speak will likely go unregarded - not only is the Academy going to award popular films, it also plans to cut the ceremony short. Those categories haven't been determined, but there has been push-back in the past in awards-season shows (not just the Oscars) from below-the-line crafts wary of having their categories nudged off the main broadcast.
However, others tweeted that they aren't too thrilled with the idea of the Academy only showing select categories live, with the other awards to be given out during commercial breaks.
Next year's Academy Awards will still air on February 24th, as previously announced.
That last point would suggest that pressure for the changes has come as much from sections of the USA film industry as it has from the global television industry, for whom the Oscar telecast is an expensive, time-consuming exercise which, in recent years at least, has delivered diminishing commercial returns. "We have the MTV Movie Awards for that kind of junk", he said.
Academy board members may serve up to three consecutive three-year terms, while officers serve one-year terms, with a maximum of four consecutive years in any one office.
Everything is packed in a sleek, lovely body, even though the design is nearly identical to last year's Note 8 . Another figure that does stand out is storage - the Note9 now starts at 128GB, and there's also a 512GB SKU.
Both players will undeniably strengthen Everton as they prepare for what promises to be a challenging season. They fought off rival interest from AC Milan, Inter Milan, West Ham and a late bid from Chelsea to get him.
While that seems farfetched, Gutierrez notes that Mack's holdout has been "mystifying" to Oakland's front office. I think he's not only their best defensive player, I think he's their best player period.
