Ceremony information[edit]

Due to the mixed receptions and declining ratings for the last two ceremonies, producers Michael De Luca and Jennifer Todd declined to helm the Oscar production. They were replaced by Donna Gigliotti and Glenn Weiss as producers.[3][4]

Best Popular Film[edit]

On August 8, 2018, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences announced the creation of a brand new category, Best Popular Film, to reward the best popular fims of the year.[5] The category was met with an overwhelming negative reception. In September of the same year, the Academy announced that the category will be delayed to "examine and seek additional input regarding the new category".[6]
