Oscars 2021 pushed?&
With lack of theatrical releases and several other movies choosing a digital premiere, the academy is contemplating suspending their Award evening by at the very least 4 months, in line with a current report. Ever for the reason that world shutdown, movies like No Time To Die, Mulan, A Quiet Place Part 2, Black Widow, F9, Top Gun: Maverick and many others have been delayed and scheduled for brand spanking new launch dates. With uncertainty across the theatrical releases for the following few months, the movie studios have reportedly been assured that will likely be given sufficient time interval for his or her movie to be eligible for Oscars nomination.
“The ongoing coronavirus crisis has caused waves in the industry and has decimated plans for so many releases this year. The Oscars organisers have been in talks for weeks about whether the ceremony can go ahead given so many releases have been pushed back. There would be a mutiny if changes weren’t made and the industry could be totally ravaged if film studios held back their offerings until the 2022 ceremony to be eligible,” an insider instructed The Sun.
Further including, the supply said, “What they’re proposing is pushing back the ceremony, which was going to take place on February 28, to either late May or early June. Doing this means films forced to postpone their release dates can put them out later this year or in early 2021 knowing they will still be eligible for the Oscars. Film studios have been informed of the plans and are now drawing up their release dates accordingly. But with everything still so up in the air, it’s all rather tentative at the moment.”
While there isn’t any official announcement on the postponement of Oscars 2021, it is kind of inevitable. However, because the supply talked about, the timeframe of postponement remains to be tentative.
