Oscar 2021 is approaching. The producers confirmed that this year’s American Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences Awards ceremony will be different from all previous gigs. They explained that it would be more of a movie set than a TV show. For the first time, the ceremony will take place at the building of the largest railway station in Los Angeles – Union Station. Will this be a great night for Chloe Chow and her movie “Nomadland”?
93rd Prize Ceremony Oscars Due to the prevailing pandemic, COVID-19 takes a different form. For the first time, the organizers left the stage, and the main part of the ceremony will take place at the largest railway station in Los Angeles – Union Station.
The building has an Art Deco aesthetic and was used in 1939. However, the artistic part will take place at the Dolby Theater. Organizers announced that many elements of the ceremony will also be held at select locations in the United States and abroad, where candidates who are unable to reach Los Angeles due to the pandemic will be gathered.
Organizers say Oscars night will be special. It won’t look like a typical TV show, but it will mirror a movie set. Organizers’ announcements show that there are no plans to communicate with the absentee winners via video conference.
The ceremony will not be hosted for the third year in a row.
Two unusual signs appeared on the list of nominated producers. The first concerns design, as it has been suggested that if someone wants they can access formal wear, and it has been suggested that everyday styles are not appropriate for this celebration. The second – related to speeches – suggests focusing on a personal experience or telling a story.
Oscar 2021: the nominations
The only pole to be nominated this year is Cinematographer Dariush Volski, Who will compete for the Oscar thanks to filming “News from the World”.
