In just one month until the nominations set and showtime, details are tricking out about the 93rd Oscars and neither Sweatshirts nor Zoom have made the cut.
“Our plan is that this year’s Oscars will look like a film and not as a television show,” the show’s producers Jessie Collins, Stacey Sher and Steven Soderbergh said in a statement on Friday. He has chosen Emmy and Tony Award-winning director Glenn Weiss to direct the live telecast on 25 April.
While it has fallen far short of a typical year, producers have stated that they are committed to holding an in-person event at Union Station in Los Angeles for nominees, presenters and limited guests. The Dolby Theater will also have a live component, which is home to the Academy Awards since 2001.
But unlike Golden Globes, which mixes in-person and zoom elements in its bi-coastal broadcasts, Oscar is not making it possible for Nominee to have a virtual element that either can’t be comfortable or doesn’t feel comfortable. Huh. Producers said they plan an active film set with on-site safety teams and testing protocols to treat the incident.
And, yes, they expect attendees to dress.
“We are aiming for a fusion of the inspiring and the aspirational, which in real terms means that the formal is totally cool if you want to go there, but the casual isn’t really that,” the producers said.
The 93rd Oscars will be broadcast live on ABC on April 25, starting at 8 pm ET.
