The Oscars will introduce a new award for popular films and the annual ceremony will be limited to three hours, organizers said Wednesday.The U.S. television audience for the March 2018 Oscar ceremony was the smallest in the awards' 90-year history.Wednesday's letter did not give details of the new category recognizing "achievement in popular film," saying those would come later, but critics tweeted that it seemed to create a second-tier honor and mocked it as "the Black Panther award".The Academy said it will trim the duration of the Oscars ceremony by handing out some awards during commercial breaks.
