The awards season this past year has been anything but normal and after the Academy Awards were pushed back months due to the pandemic, the first details about the show have emerged.
The Oscars will be in person airing live from multiple locations.
“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. To create the in-person show our global audience wants to see, while adapting to the requirements of the pandemic, the ceremony will broadcast live from multiple locations, including the landmark Dolby Theatre. We look forward to sharing more details soon,” a spokesperson for the Academy said in a statement.
The Oscars are the most-watched event in the industry, surpassing the Emmys, Golden Globes, and Grammys.
They will air on April 25. The show will be produced by Jesse Collins, Stacey Sher, and Steven Soderbergh. No host or director has been announced yet.
