This is the first new category in more than 20 years.

For decades, casting directors have been asking for the category, saying that their work is essential to the success of a movie.

However, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, which runs the Oscars, has turned down the idea — until now.

For movies that come out in 2025, the new category will be added, but fans won't get to see a statuette until the event in 2026.

When it comes to adding new awards, the Academy is usually pretty cautious. The most recent award was formed in 2001 for best animated feature film.
