Academy shelves plans for popular Oscar award
"There has been a wide range of reactions to the introduction of a new award, and we recognise the need for further discussion with our members," Dawn Hudson, the CEO of the Academy, said in a statement
The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences said it was shelving plans for "popular film" Oscar award that had been ridiculed by critics as a desperate bid to boost viewership and honour money-making movies.
"There has been a wide range of reactions to the introduction of a new award, and we recognise the need for further discussion with our members," Dawn Hudson, the CEO of the Academy, said in a statement.
"We have made changes to the Oscars over the years — including this year — and we will continue to evolve while also respecting the incredible legacy of the last 90 years." The organisation that hands out the Oscars had announced the new award in August along with other changes to the 91st Oscars that will be held in Hollywood in February.
