Los Angeles: The idea to hand out a popular film Oscar for movies has been shelved following widespread backlash. The film academy president John Bailey said that the new category was well intentioned in its efforts to reflect a changing industry but misunderstood by its critics.

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences said that it will further study plans for the category, citing the fact implementing a new award would create challenges for films that have already been released.

The Oscar Academy announced the new category for outstanding achievement in popular film, evoking immediate questions about the criteria. Critics also pointed that it would impact critically and commercially films such as Black Panther, which has been cited as a possible picture contender.
