93rd Academy Awards: No 'virtual affair' for Oscars 2021

93rd Academy Awards: No 'virtual affair' for Oscars 2021

There were a lot of speculations around how the Oscars would be held amid the COVID-19 pandemic, and it is now confirmed the award gala will not go virtual. "The Oscars in-person telecast will happen," a representative from the Academy told variety.com.

However, the Academy of Motion Arts and Sciences has decided to push the annual telecast to April 25, 2021, owing to the pandemic. Several sources have shared that by pushing the awards ceremony back, the Academy hopes for cinema halls to regain normalcy, allowing for more film to compete in the annual celebration.

Now, the Academy is focusing on ensuring that the event is held traditionally. However, it is to be seen how they put a plan in place to hold the ceremony at the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles. It is still uncertain how many people will be allowed inside the 3,400-seat Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles, where the ceremony traditionally takes place.
