    The film academy has finally revealed the Oscar categories that will be presented during the commercial breaks of this year's broadcast.

    A spokesperson for the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences said Monday that the awards for cinematography, film editing, makeup and hairstyling and live-action short will be presented off-air.

    The winning speeches will air later in the broadcast and will also be live-streamed on Oscar.com and the film academy's social accounts.

    The plan to hand out certain awards during commercials to achieve a three-hour runtime was announced in August. In future years, four to six rotating categories could be cut from the broadcast.

    The 91st Oscars will air on Feb. 24.
