I'm not surprised, given the backlash it's gotten.
And the ironic part is they only came up with it to address the backlash they get for being snobs.

Iím glad this isnít happening because it would just end up moving movies that deserve best picture but that were a little too mainstream out of the Best Picture category.

The Oscars already have enough categories and probably an unpopular view but I don't think a lot of popular/successful films have been wrongly denied nominations/wins. Expanding the Best Picture nominees to up to 10 was already a pretty transparent attempt to nominate more popular films, though they don't have increased chances of winning, and gain more viewers.

I really hope they're rescinding their idea of making the ceremony shorter by announcing some awards during commercials... If you're watching the Oscars does anybody give a shit if they end at 11:00 or 11:30?

Well, people do have work in the morning, so it's only fair to get to the one award people are waiting for sooner rather than later.

Now, the GRAMMYs, you're right and no one gives a shit how long it is.

I have seriously mixed feelings about this decision by the Academy. Good because they could fully recognize super hero movies for more than visual and audio effects, bad because many popular movies have won Best Picture before. I feel they're just doing this to gain more ratings. Corporate sell outs....

You mean changes in response to its lowest ratings in history are just to get higher ratings?!

I don't really know. Like I said, I have mixed feelings about it. I also think that they're going at all costs to avoid having a superhero movie like Black Panther or Avengers Infinity War nominated for Best Picture, as we all know it's the number one genre of movies right now.
