Oscar 2019: Four Awards to be Presented during Show’s Commercial Breaks

Oscars in four categories will be presented during commercial breaks of the 91st Academy Awards, February 24, 2019.

The awards will be best cinematography, film editing, live action short and makeup and hairstyling. The winning speeches will edited to remove the winners’ walk from their seats to the stage and each speech will be aired separately later in the telecast.

Academy president John Bailey informed the membership of the plans in a letter emailed on Monday. He also explained that the four delayed presentations will be streamed live online via Oscar.com.

The board of governors has committed to a three-hour show this year. At the annual nominees luncheon last week, this point was emphasized by Bailey and the show’s producers, Glenn Weiss and Donna Gigliotti.

“When you head to the stage, move quickly. Show us how eager you are to get up there,” Bailey said, noting that winners will have 90 seconds from the moment their name is called to reach the stage and complete their speech.
