With this years Oscar ceremony pulling in the smallest viewing audience since it’s first televised ceremony, the 25th Oscars in 1953, the Academy have decided it’s time for a change. From 2019, the show will run for 3 hours and focus on popular films as well as the arthouse films that often take the limelight.

Therefore, technical awards could be handed out in the commercial breaks – meaning most of Lucasfilm’s recent wins wouldn’t be seen on live TV – but which of the 24 awards will be shifted has yet to be determined. However, if popular films are to receive more of the spotlight then perhaps ILM and Lucasfilm will start mixing it up in the Oscar race once again.
