The Coronavirus pandemic has brought the world to a standstill and many nations are trying their best to combat this virus. The impact has brought down the global economy as many countries are trying their best to recover from the loss inflicted by COVID-19. This year there has been an unprecedented fall in a number of releases due to the spread of the virus.

There are plans to postpone the Academy Awards ceremony next year by four months, for the first time in 93 years. A report from The Sun stated that organizers are in talks to push back the ceremony, which was scheduled to be held on February 28 next year. It might be pushed back to May or June.

Many Hollywood studios have already been informed about the longer release window for their films to be eligible for nomination. For the uninitiated, the Oscar season usually begins after the summer, with studios releasing their awards season contenders in November and December. The Academy members vote in January.

Several projects have been pushed back as cinemas remain shut.

The report quoted a source saying, "The ongoing coronavirus crisis has caused waves in the industry and has decimated plans for so many releases this year. The Oscars organizers have been in talks for weeks about whether the ceremony can go ahead given so many releases have been pushed back."

The source continued: "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.

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."

While the organizers have decided to postpone the Academy Awards, there might be a slight change in the rules as well. Last month, the Academy Of Motion Picture Arts And Sciences announced a change in rules and eligibility requirements for the 2021 Oscars, making movies of streaming services eligible to win the golden statuettes.

The Academy tweaked its Oscar eligibility rules in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic. The change is not permanent and will apply to films released this year. The Academy also shared that it will eliminate an Oscar category. The sound mixing and sound editing categories will be combined into one award, reducing the total number of categories presented on the show to 23.

Oscars 2021 Pushed Back To April 25th; Eligibility Window Extended Too

As a result of the global pandemic, the 93rd Academy Awards ceremony has been pushed back from Feb. 28 to April 25, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences and its Oscars broadcasting partner ABC announced on Monday. In turn, the Oscars eligibility period for feature films — which began on Jan. 1, 2020, and was set to expire at the end of Dec. 31, 2020 — has been extended to Feb. 28, 2021.

Apart from a range of films being constantly delayed one after another, we can now see that Oscars 2021 has become the latest ceremony to be postponed.

As a result of the global pandemic, the 93rd Academy Awards ceremony has been pushed back from Feb. 28 to April 25, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences and its Oscars broadcasting partner ABC announced on Monday. In turn, the Oscars eligibility period for feature films — which began on Jan. 1, 2020, and was set to expire at the end of Dec. 31, 2020 — has been extended to Feb. 28, 2021. The Hollywood Reporter exclusively reported on Sunday that this was set to happen.

While highly unusual, these moves are not unprecedented. The Oscars has been delayed three times before — due to LA flooding in 1938; following the assassination of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. in 1968; and after the attempted assassination of Pres. Ronald Reagan in 1981. And, as I noted back in March, the Oscars eligibility window was extended beyond the traditional 12-month period once before, ahead of the 6th Oscars. (That ceremony, in March 1934, was preceded by a 17-month eligibility window spanning Aug. 1, 1932 through Dec. 31, 1933, so that thereafter the eligibility period could be the actual calendar year preceding each ceremony, Jan. 1 through Dec. 31.)

In a statement, the Academy indicated that the Oscars will still be held "at the Dolby Theatre at Hollywood & Highland Center in Hollywood" and "will air live on ABC," an apparent rejection of the possibility of a pre-taped and/or virtual gathering. And the Academy emphasized, "The intent going forward is to ultimately return to awarding excellence for films released in the January-December calendar year."
