Oscars 2021 award ceremony got postponed due to COVID-19 pandemic

Oscars 2021 award ceremony got postponed and scheduled the date for April 25, 2021 due to coronavirus pandemic.

The award shows are being postponed one by one due to pandemic. The dates of Oscars have been shifted from February 28 to April 25.

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences and the ABC Television Network said that the 93rd Academy Awards will now be held April 25, 2021, eight weeks later than originally planned because of the pandemic's effects on the movie industry.

The Academy's Board of Governors also decided to extend the eligibility window beyond the calendar year to February 28, 2021, for feature films, and delay the opening of the Academy Museum of Motion Pictures from December until April 30, 2021.

The film academy has been grappling with how to handle the pandemic's near shutdown of the theatrical exhibition and film production and festival business since mid-March.

With theatres shut down, release dates pushed and major festivals like Cannes cancelled, the academy in April made the unprecedented decision to allow films that did not have a theatrical run to be eligible for the awards, but only for one year.
