The governing board and the officials of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences have reportedly sent a letter to the Oscar membership who were making attempts for assuaging the concerns related to the decision of hold four of the major award present during the commercial breaks on 24th of February.
The new letter by the officers of the Academy of the Motion Picture Arts and Sciences states that none of the awards categories at the 91st Academy Awards ceremony is going to be presented during the commercials. The letter is also clarifying that none of the achievement of the distinguished personalities who were nominated and who were also deemed as winners aren’t less than the other categories.
This is the result of a series of misinformation which came into being due to numerous social media posts as well as reporting, and this has understandably upset most of the members of the Oscars. The board of governors of the Academy Awards is trying to explain and reinstate the plans to present the awards.
The Academy has reiterated the four of the categories that were supposed to be shown sometime during the 24th February show. A new detail started to surface that were reportedly selected in terms of exclusion with regards to the live presentation the moment the branches have volunteered them. The Academy then came up with a clarification and said that around 4-6 categories are going to be selected which will not be broadcasted live. Nevertheless, the hand-picked four categories of 2019 are going to be exempted in the following year.
The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences have also said that as far as the future shows are concerned, this change before coming to the spotlight was discussed by the Board of Governors back in August 2018. The board even agreed to the changes that received full support from the executive committees of the branch.
