Oscars 2021 Not To Be Held Virtually

by Muthoni Kimani December 8, 2020

If you were hoping for a chance to get comfortable on the upcoming Oscars couches my apologies as the awards ceremony will not go virtual.

The Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences announced that the 2021 Oscars wouldn't go virtual. The organization will host an "in-person" ceremony and is now finding ways to hold the event safely.

The Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences has announced that the 2021 Oscars will not be held virtually and will instead host a traditional in-person, star-studded ceremony.

The decision was made after the organization pushed its annual telecast back two months to April 25, 2021.

It's said that the Academy decided to push the awards night back because of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, hoping that theatres would reopen by spring so more films would be eligible.

The Academy Awards are traditionally held at the 3,400-seater Dolby Theater in Los Angeles. But because of the corona virus pandemic, the number of people who will be allowed to attend is unclear.

Television's Emmy Awards in September were a virtual-only ceremony. Including the host Jimmy Kimmel, only production staff and a handful of stars were allowed inside the event venue at the Staples Center in downtown Los Angeles.

The 93rd Academy Awards will air live on April 25, 2021
