It's unclear what exactly the "new category for outstanding achievement in popular film" will seek to honour. That has changed to February 9. - We're planning a more globally accessible, three-hour telecast.
President John Bailey and CEO Dawn Hudson announced that three key alterations have been made for future ceremonies.

The Board of Governors, staff, Academy members, and various working groups spent the last several months discussing improvements to the show. Some will be presented during commercial breaks at the Dolby Theatre, with the key moments being edited into the broadcast later.

While the Board of Governors probably hoped the fresh category would excite viewers and perhaps get those ratings up - spoiler alert - Hollywood pretty much hates it.
