Oscars 2021

at Online (8 p.m. ET)
Two months ago, the Academy moved its annual telecast back to April 25, 2021. Sources inside the Oscars claim that the Academy hoped that theaters would be open again in the spring by moving the awards ceremony back, thereby encouraging more films to participate in the annual celebration of the best films of the year.

But even though movie theaters remain closed, promoters are looking at how the show will proceed, as it still lives, by hosting the Oscars later in spring. Questions arise as to just how many individuals will be allowed within the 3,400-seat Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles, where the ceremony is usually performed.

Recently, the Academy has done a Dolby walkthrough to see all the different options,"The Academy has done a walkthrough of the Dolby recently to see all the multiple options,"

It's not clear what safety protocols will be introduced for the ceremony. A representative from the Dolby Theatre declined to comment.

The COVID-19 pandemic has crippled the film industry since the March lockdowns, with cinema theaters closed and production halted. In response, in addition to making films that premiere on streaming services apply for submission, the Academy extended the eligibility date from Dec. 31 to Feb. 28, 2021.

With host Jimmy Kimmel and several nominees watching the show from home over Zoom, the Emmys ceremony in September was a hybrid experience that had some in-person elements.

How many of the nominees will be willing to attend -- or will consent to -- in-person participation is not clear. In the acting races, many experienced actors are on the older side, including Anthony Hopkins, 82; Ellen Burstyn, 88; Sophia Loren, 86; Meryl Streep, 71; David Strathairn, 72; and Yuh-Jung Youn, 73.

The Oscars was followed by four televised ceremonies: the Golden Globes (Feb. 28), Critics Choice (March 7), SAG (March 14) and BAFTA (April 11).

In a July 27 press release, The Globes, which is hosted by the Hollywood International Press Association, said their show will air live from the Beverly Hilton in Beverly Hills, hosted by Tina Fey and Amy Poehler. For this article, the HFPA declined to comment.

Usually, the SAG Awards, which are given by SAG-165,000+ AFTRA's members, are held at the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles, which has a seating capacity of 6,300. The opportunity for a virtual display was not ruled out by the critical predecessor to the Academy Awards. We're looking at a range of options for our show,"For our show, we're looking at a variety of options," "Our submission period has just closed, but numbers are on par with previous years, and we are looking forward to a strong competition this awards season. We are excited to honor this year's outstanding performances in both film and television in March. And like our colleagues at other awards shows, we are working to create an entertaining and safe show for all of our nominees."
