New Oscar Category - Outstanding Achievement in Popular Film

If you're someone who always thought the Oscars were irrelevant anyway, this one's for you:

Isn't this what the Golden Globes & MTV Movie Awards are for?

Yes seemed a little odd, but I suppose just adding a few popular films to the best film category and then them not winning, but it does seem a little People's Choice awards.

It's like they created a whole new category just so that Black Panther can win an Oscar

I wonder what movie will win it?

What will the criteria be? Seems really strange, your film was really good but not Oscar good, this is the Oscar for the film that was the best film but that we didn't want to give an Oscar to.
