No zoom is allowed for the 2021 Oscars.
While several winners were able to make speeches from the comfort of their couches at the 2020 Emmys and 2021 Golden Globes, this year’s Oscars will be back entirely in person.
The producers of the 93rd annual Oscars –Steven Soderbergh, Stacey Sher and Jesse Collins– sent a joint email to the Oscar nominees on Thursday March 18, the E! News. The letter set out the rules and expectations for the April 25 ceremony and insisted that the event could be held safely during the coronavirus pandemic.
The Academy plans to host “an intimate, personal event” at Union Station in Los Angeles. Some live moments take place at the show’s traditional venue, the Dolby Theater in Hollywood.
The notice specifically states, “For those of you who are unable to attend due to scheduling or ongoing unrest while traveling, we want you to know that there is no option to make the show larger.”
