The 93rd Academy Awards are currently set for Feb. 28, 2021 on ABC, but according to a new report from Variety, they will likely be postponed thanks to the worldwide pandemic.
The president of the Academy, David Rubin admits that he’s not sure what form the celebration will take. “It’s impossible to know what the landscape will be. We know we want to celebrate film but we do not exactly what form it will take,” said Rubin.
There has been a ton of speculation that the date of the Oscars could go to April, giving studios a few extra months to release new work for the competition. But I wonder how many marquee movies will want to come out in the dreaded January/February spot, even to get their films seen and ready to compete.
