Oscars 2021 will not be held virtually

The Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences, better known as AMPAS, pushed back the eligibility dates for movies to February 21st and the ceremony itself until April 25th.

If you haven't heard it yet, the 2021 Oscars will not be a virtual, zoom-enabled event. In June, the Academy had announced that the 2021 Oscars will be held on April 25, 2021, eight weeks later than originally planned because of the pandemic's effects on the film industry.

But the representative told Variety, "The Oscars in-person telecast will happen". "The Academy has done a walkthrough of the Dolby recently to see all the multiple options", added a publicist.

In addition to that, they made it very clear that the location is the same as previously mentioned - the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles - which has no less than 3,400 seats.

It's not clear how numerous nominees will be able to - or will agree to - in-person attendance.

The awards show, which usually takes place in early February, had already been pushed back two months, largely because of pandemic-related disruptions to studios' production and release schedules.

The Academy is finding a way to host the 2021 Academy Awards in person next year. While the show plans to go forward with an in person telecast, there will likely still be restrictions limiting the number of people allowed to attend in place. The organisers are now figuring out safety and seating plans.

But later Tuesday, The Hollywood Reporter cited multiple sources saying no decisions have been made on the format of the show but reported the likeliest outcome would be show mixing on-stage appearances with nominees appearing virtually like on the 72nd Primetime Emmy Awards on September 20.

4 televised ceremonies lead as much as the Oscars: Golden Globes (Feb. 28), Critics Alternative (March 7), SAG (March 14) and BAFTA (April 11).

However, it is yet to be confirmed what safety procedures will be put in place for several upcoming award shows.
