They are now postponing the introduction of the new “popular” Oscar category to the upcoming 91st Academy Awards on February 24th. When the announcement was made about the new category, it was met with a lot of backlash. So The Academy announced that they are shelving the idea for now, but will continue to discuss it and "will examine and seek additional input regarding the new category." The Academy also explained that implementing the new award nine months into the year "created challenges for films that have already been released."

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.”
