It's time for a close up of the most prominent awards show but that doesn't mean that the 93rd Oscars ceremony won't go unaffected by the ongoing pandemic. The ceremony is usually held in February and really that was the last normal award show we had until we all went into quarantine. This show was delayed by two months but it will be an in-person event so we can avoid Zoom calls dropping on acceptance speeches. This edition of the Oscars will continue the trend of the show not having a host.
In a more questionable decision, the guests and nominated talent will be required to wear masks but only when the camera is not specifically on them. The event is being treated similarly to a television show production that has different COVID-19 protocols. Because if the CDC has made anything clear this year, it's that the pandemic doesn't spread when you're on camera. In all seriousness, at least the awards are even happening this year after a very unstable time for the theater and film industry.
