LOS ANGELES (AP) — Big changes are coming to the Academy Awards, including the addition of a popular film award category and the promise of a shorter ceremony in an effort to combat declining viewership and criticisms that the awards are out of touch with the mainstream. But the Wednesday morning announcement was also met with immediate backlash online, raising questions about what the new category would mean for a film like "Black Panther," a global blockbuster which has also been talked about as a favorite contender for the best picture Oscar.
