[ # ] The Oscars are delayed until to April 25th
June 15th, 2020 under Coronavirus, Oscars


Today, the Television Academy announced that the Creative Emmys is going virtual, they canceled the Governors Ball, and they are still not sure what they are going to do with the Emmys on September 20th. because of the coronavirus pandemic.

While TV’s night is still questionable, the movies’ night is not. The Movie Academy revealed today that the Oscars are moving from February 28th to April 25th. Not only that, they extended the date that studios have to release their films in the theaters. Instead of New Year’s Eve being the cutoff date, the studios now have until the day when the Oscars were supposed to have aired. There goes my friend’s chances of his movie Bloodshot getting a nomination for Best Picture.

According to the Associated Press, this is the fourth time they have been delayed. “The ceremony was pushed back a week because of disastrous flooding in Los Angeles in 1938. In 1968, it was delayed two days following the assassination of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. And in 1981, it was put off for 24 hours after President Ronald Reagan was shot in Washington D.C. The 1981 decision was made four hours before the broadcast was scheduled to begin.”

It will be intersting to see where our world will be in April, and if they can go on as they have gone on in the past.

As of now, when it comes to the bigger awards shows, the Tonys is indefintely postposed and no word on the Grammys, Golden Globes and SAG Awards. I am sure the latter two will be affected by AMPAS’s decision. I mean, they can’t have a different eligibility date than the Oscars. Can they?

Was anyone else hoping that Awards season was just outright cancelled?
