The Oscars are getting a modern update.

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences announced a new category for "Achievement in Popular Film."

The details about eligibility in the category haven't been released, and the Academy hasn't said when the change will take effect.

It's one of several changes the organization plans to make.

The Academy says it will be more strict to keep the show within its three-hour window.

It also plans to broadcast the 92nd annual ceremony earlier.

Next year's awards show is set for February 24.
