This year Oscar winners will have 90 seconds to get up from their seat, go to the podium, accept their awards and finish their victory speech.
This gives the winners more time as traditionally they had 45 seconds for their speeches.
The producers need to finish the show within three hours and short speeches help finish on time.
The show’s producer Donna Gigliotti gave the example of Steven Soderbergh’s speech from 2001 which was short and meaningful at the same time.
John Bailey, president of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, told winners to keep the speeches short — and avoid thanking their dogs or diets.
The Academy Awards ceremony will air on Feb 24. at 8:00 p.m.
