The 92nd Oscars, scheduled for February 20, 2020, will include a brand new category: "Outstanding Achievement in Popular Film". Eligibility requirements for the popular film category will be forthcoming.
As THR notes, this is probably an attempt to make the Oscars seem more relevant, instead of taking place right at the end of the months-long awards circuit.

"The Oscars creating a whole new category so they don't have to acknowledge Black Panther in the best picture category is the most racist and elitist thing I have heard today", read yet another tweet.
We'll address points 1 and 3 in a bit, but it's point 2 - the new category for popular film - that's getting people talking today.
The new date moves up the awards - typically held on the last Sunday in February (or first Sunday in March when accommodating for the Winter Olympics) - to February 9, 2020.
