Film academy reveals which 4 Oscars will be given off air
- LOS ANGELES (AP)
The film academy has finally revealed the Oscar categories that will be presented during the commercial breaks of this year's broadcast.
A spokesperson for the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences said Monday that the awards for cinematography, film editing, makeup and hairstyling, and live-action short will be presented off-air.
The winning speeches will air later in the broadcast and will also be live-streamed on Oscar.com and the film academy's social accounts.
The plan to hand out certain awards during commercials to achieve a three-hour runtime was announced in August. In future years, four to six rotating categories could be cut from the broadcast.
The 91st Oscars will air on ABC on Feb. 24.
