The Academy took a few extraordinary steps last year in acknowledgment of the coronavirus pandemic, moving its ceremony back two months — from Feb. 28 to April 25 — expanding the eligibility window, and temporarily removing requirements that a movie must play in theaters to be considered.
This means that nominees in top categories may become sleeper hits, unable to break the box office amid the pandemic but benefiting from increased attention during award season.
“Nomadland,” streaming now on Hulu, is a top contender after scooping up the best motion picture drama award at the Golden Globes. Its director, Chloé Zhao, also became the second woman to win best director. at the Globes.
Other films scoring nominations for Oscar bellwethers, like the Globes, Screen Actors Guild Awards and Producers Guild Awards, include “Minari,” “Mank” “The Trial of the Chicago 7,” “Borat Subsequent Moviefilm,” “Judas and the Black Messiah,” “One Night in Miami…” and “Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom,” among others.
According to the Academy, the in-person award show on Sunday, April 25, 2021 will be broadcast from multiple locations. One location includes the famous Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles, California, where the show has been held since 2001.
“In this unique year that has asked so much of so many, the Academy is determined to present an Oscars like none other, while prioritizing the public health and safety of all those who will participate,” a spokesperson for the Academy shared in a statement.
