December 3 Under the influence of the coronavirus epidemic, many award ceremonies have been cancelled or held online instead. According to Variety Weekly, as a grand award ceremony in the film industry, the 93rd Academy Awards in 2021 will still hold the live award ceremony in the form of guests in accordance with tradition, and broadcast live television.
According to the report, the 93rd Academy Awards were originally scheduled for February 28, 2021, but due to the epidemic, it was postponed to April 25 to allow theaters to reopen in the spring, so that more films can participate in the competition for major awards. A representative of the American Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences said on the 1st: “The Oscars will be held offline.”
Traditionally, the annual Oskan Awards ceremony is held at the 3,400-seat Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles. However, due to the impact of the COVID-19 epidemic, it is not clear how many people were allowed to attend the ceremony.
A publicist familiar with the ceremony revealed that the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences recently held a preview at the Dolby Theatre to find out all possible options.
At present, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences and the broadcaster of the ceremony, ABC, did not respond to this first.
