This Sunday (25) is the 93rd edition of the Oscar, in a ceremony quite different from the others. In a year marked by the pandemic of the new coronavirus, some adaptations had to be made both in the choices of the indicated films and in the event itself. See more details about this award here and find out where to watch Oscar 2021 on TV and internet.
The ceremony in detail
Even those who are already used to marathon the films nominated for the awards and follow the delivery of prizes, have everything to be surprised with the Oscar 2021. Due to the covid-19 and the consequent closing of the cinemas, this year the event had to make an exception in the its eligibility rules, allowing films that did not premiere directly in theaters, as usual, could also apply for the award.
Not for nothing, some of the hottest films of the night are originals of some streaming services, as is the case of Mank, a feature film from Netflix that had the highest number of nominations this year (there were 10 in all); The Chicago 7, also from Netflix; The Sound of Silence, from Amazon Prime Video and Soul from Disney +.
However, it was not only in this criterion that Oscar 2021 needed to make some adaptations. The ceremony itself had to be totally restructured, in such a way that this Sunday’s event, even if in person, will be broadcast in different places alternately.
Following all the safety protocols proposed by the World Health Organization (WHO), Oscar 2021 will have two main locations: Union Station, famous Los Angeles train station, and the city’s Dolby Theater, home of Oscar since 2002. In addition to these locations, another ten small locations will be spread across cities like Paris and London, and different celebrities will announce the night’s categories, with no fixed presenters.
Where to watch the Oscar 2021
The official ceremony of the Oscar 2021 starts at 9 pm (Brasília time), however, those who like the glamorous side of the event, can check out the red carpet that happens before the awards and that promises to be different this year due to the pandemic.
