The Oscars In The Era Of COVID-19

Date: April 28, 2020

The 93rd Academy Awards ceremony is still slated to take place Feb. 28, 2021, but the road to it is going to look considerably different than it did for any of the prior 92.

Where due to the COVID-19 pandemic, The Academy will consider streaming films that didn’t play in theaters eligible for the Oscars. However, these films must have already had a planned theatrical release to be considered eligible.

In addition, The Academy has decided to combine Best Sound Mixing and Best Sound Editing categories into one titled Best Sound (which will recognize both editors and mixers) from here on out, bringing the number of Oscars that will be presented on the telecast from 24 to 23.
