The Oscars' decision to add a new category to honor popular films while promising a brisk three-hour ceremony is angering movie fans on social media.
奧斯卡評委會決定增加一項新的獎項表彰人氣影片,同時承諾將為大家展現一場緊湊的3小時頒獎典禮,然而該決定卻在社交媒體上激怒了廣大影迷。

Critics of the changes say that the Oscars is being turned into a 'popular variety show' and that the real motive behind the new category is to deny films like 'Black Panther' a deserved Best Picture nod.
批評該變革的人士稱,奧斯卡頒獎禮正在變成一檔“通俗的綜藝節目”,新獎項背后真實的動機是拒絕給《黑豹》這樣的影片頒發其應得的最佳影片獎。

The plan to air an abridged version of the ceremony is also drawing backlash.
播放刪減版的頒獎典禮的計劃也引起大家的強烈抵制。

The Oscars is believed likely to begin awarding film editing, sound, and other 'below the line' categories during commercial breaks in order to save time and move the award show along quicker.
人們認為,為了節省時間并讓頒獎禮進行地更快一些,奧斯卡評委會可能會在廣告休息時間為電影剪輯、音效以及其他“線下”部門頒獎。

Ratings for the 90th Academy Awards fell to an all-time low of 26.5 million viewers, down 19 percent from the previous year and the first time the glitzy awards ceremony had fewer than 30 million viewers since 2008.
第90屆奧斯卡頒獎禮的收視率跌至歷史最低點,觀眾僅為2650萬人,比去年下降了19%,而且自2008年以來這是這場盛大的頒獎典禮第一次收視率低于3000萬人。

The airing of 'select' categories that will be presented during commercial breaks is enraging those involved in so-called 'below the line' fields, including sound, makeup, and film editing.
部分“選中的”獎項將在廣告休息時間頒獎這一決定激怒了那些從事所謂“線下”領域的人士,如音效、化妝及電影剪輯等部門。

These unheralded workers believe they will be the ones shortchanged by the new changes.
這些默默無聞的工作人員認為,新變革會把他們的頒獎部分減掉。

The sound branch member said that the Academy is wrong to blame the 'non-celebrity' nominees and winners for the ceremony's sagging television ratings.
音效部門的成員表示,頒獎委員會錯誤地把頒獎典禮收視率下降歸咎于“非名人”的候選人和獲獎者。

The addition of a popular film category caused the most chatter Wednesday morning, as a clear effort to attract a larger audience by honoring bigger and more seen films.
星期三上午增加的人氣電影獎項也引起眾人吐槽,因為這顯然是為了通過給賣座的大制作影片頒獎來吸引更多的觀眾。

It wasn't specified whether it would be added for the 91st Academy Awards this February.
今年二月份舉辦的第91屆奧斯卡頒獎禮是否會增加這一獎項還不確定。

Meanwhile, on social media, reaction to the change was largely negative, with some accusing the Academy of coming up with the 'popularity' category as a way of preemptively heading off criticism for not giving Black Panther a 'Best Picture' nomination.
同時,社交媒體上對這一變革的反應大多是負面的,一些人指責評委會提出“人氣獎”是為了先發制人地阻止人們指責其不給《黑豹》頒發最佳影片獎。

'I want Black Panther nominated for **Best Film**, not whatever new Popular Trending Thing category they making up,' tweeted Evan Narcisse.
“我想要《黑豹》提名最佳影片獎,而不是他們新造的什么流行趨勢一類的獎,”埃文·納西斯在推特上寫道。

'So…does that mean that films like "Black Panther" and "Mission Impossible" can’t compete for Best Picture?' tweeted Stuart Oldham.
“所以……這意味著像《黑豹》和《碟中諜》這樣的影片無法角逐最佳影片獎了?”斯圖爾特·奧爾德姆在推特上寫道。
