The officials have confirmed the date and place of the event. It is set to happen on April 25, 2021. The committee also claimed that they went back to the Oscars tradition, which held the game in the last week of February.
With the speculation around, the venue of the event is Dolby Theater. So, we can end up the arguments here. Hollywood Boulevard will still serve as the venue of the event. It is the arrangement made by the committee back than to host such a big event. The venue is large enough to cater to three thousands four hundred guests.
The Oscars 2021 live stream is almost here, and it’s going to cap off a truly unprecedented year for the film industry. The movie biz was hit hard by the Covid-19 pandemic, with many big movie releases delayed for months or years, productions shut down and the entire theatrical experience usurped by streaming at home.
But this is Hollywood and the show must go on. Many great films still came out last year and received much deserved recognition from the Oscar nominations. This Sunday, the 93rd Academy Awards will bestow honors among the nominees for best performances, craft work and technical feats. The wide range of movies include the meditative road-tripping Nomadland to the graceful family tale Minari to the courtroom fireworks of The Trial of the Chicago 7.
The Academy made two big calls with regards to this year’s Oscars shortly after the pandemic began, the first being an unprecedented decision to grant eligibility to streaming movies that missed out on a theatrical release. More on that here.
Second was its announcement that the ceremony would be postponed from Feb. 27 to late April, which is quite late for an Academy Awards show. (They’re typically held in late February or early March in non-pandemic times.) The deadline for eligibility was also extended accordingly from Dec. 31 through Feb. 28.
In a different move toward “normal” (and a change of pace from February’s half-virtual, half-IRL Golden Globes) this year’s Oscars ceremony and its red-carpet lead-up will be held in-person, though attendees are limited to nominees, their guests, and presenters to keep everyone safe. That’s according to an email the show’s producers sent to Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences members in mid-March, as USA Today reported, which noted that Zoom speeches “will not be an option.”
Also returning to the Oscars: great gowns, beautiful gowns. “We’re aiming for a fusion of Inspirational and Aspirational,” the producers wrote, “which in actual words means formal [dress] is totally cool if you want to go there, but casual is really not.” Translation: Don’t expect any “Jason Sudeikis in a tie-dye hoodie” moments to come out of the evening.
