Revamped Oscars: shorter, earlier

Big changes are coming to the Academy Awards.

And they’re aimed at getting more than just the die-hard movie fan to perch in front of the T-V for the annual awards ceremony.

Academy Award officials are adding an award category for popular film.

They also vow that future ceremonies will be shorter.

And starting in 2020, the date for the show itself will be earlier.

Next year’s Oscars will be February 24th but the following year, it will February 9th.
