OSCAR 2021: Award organisers unveil new guidelines, says no option for nominees to attend via zoom


The organisers of the 2021 edition of the Oscar Awards has unveiled guidelines for this year’s event set to be staged in the American city of Los Angeles.

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences released an official letter on Tuesday detailing new guidelines for the upcoming event set for April 25 at the Dolby Theatre.

Among the list of guidelines is the request that all nominees attend the event in person.

According to the US Today, nominees and guests will qualify as essential workers to attend the event in Los Angeles.

Nominees are also expected to begin arriving in the United States from April 17 through to April 20.

Also, there will be no option for nominees to attend the live show via zoom. “For those of you unable to attend due to scheduling or continued travel concerns, we want you to know that there will not be a Zoom option to go live,” the letter states.

“We will do everything possible to provide a safe evening for you all to enjoy in person, as well as all the millions of fans around the world, and we believe that virtual overshadows all those efforts. Those who cannot attend, the Academy will accept the Oscar on their behalf,” the letter added.
