The Oscars Add New Popular Film Category

Finally, the respect superhero movies deserve!

For the last 200 years or so, superhero movies have gotten a bad rap as being typical box office popcorn fare and it doesn't look like that stigma is going to go anywhere. The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences has decided to add a new Oscar category based around popular films.

With ratings dropping, AMPAS has to do something to get people's eyeballs to look at them. While the Best Picture category will continue to be dramas (the last three winners were The Shape of WaterMoonlight, and Spotlight), it seems this new category will finally give Paul Rudd the attention he deserves as Ant-Man.

The 91st Oscars is set to air Sunday, February 24, 2019. The 92nd Oscars will move to Sunday, February 9, 2020, from the previously announced February 23.
