Spike Lee and Martin Scorsese are among more than 40 directors and cinematographers who have signed an open letter criticising the decision to hand out four Oscars during the ad break.
Edited speeches from the winners of best cinematography, editing, hair and makeup and live action short will be played later in the ceremony.
The signatories, who also include Roger Deakins, have urged the Academy to reverse the decision.
On 11 February the Academy emailed members to say that, in order to keep the show down to three hours, they would be presenting four awards during commercial breaks.
Their winning speeches would then be aired later in the broadcast in edited form.
It is hoped the shorter ceremony will stop falling viewers for the ceremony.
“Viewing patterns for the Academy Awards are changing quickly in our current multi-media world, and our show must also evolve to successfully continue promoting motion pictures to a worldwide audience,” the email said.
