But it's the creation of a new "popular film" category that's stirring outrage among Academy voters and forcing yet another hard conversation about race in Hollywood, reports CBS News' Vladimir Duthiers.
Academy president John Bailey and chief executive officer Dawn Hudson announced the move yesterday, along with a package of reforms aimed at keeping the annual movie awards, which began in 1929, "relevant in a changing world".
The Academy also created a new category - "for the outstanding documentary film".

The Oscars are adding a "popular film" category and shortening the broadcast to a maximum three hours in 2019.
"Change is coming to the Oscars", tweeted the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, which has traditionally put together the glittering awards gala each year in late February or early March. Not to be confused with the "Best Picture" award, the additional category is causing quite the uproar on social media. It would likely mean that big-budget crowd-pleasers, even ones as successful and critically acclaimed as "Black Panther", would never be considered for Best Picture.
Plus, there's the whole "popular films should already be nominated" argument. For example, last year's WonderWoman was a groundbreaking reinvigoration of the dormant female superhero landscape, and it won the hearts of both critics and regular moviegoers, but it was shut out from the ceremony despite a huge campaign to get it nominated. "They initially tried to do something similar about a decade ago when they extended the amount of Best Picture nominees from 5 to 10, because of the uproar when popular movies like "WALL-E" and "The Dark Knight" were being excluded from Best Picture nominations". This year's telecast, hosted by Jimmy Kemmel, which was nearly four-hour long, dropped to an all-time low of 19 percent from the previous year to just 26.5 million viewers, according to the Hollywood Reporter.
