Here are writer and director Brett Gusky's predictions for Best Picture Nominations...

Who is hosting the Oscars 2021?

The Academy has yet to make an official announcement regarding the hosting of the 2021 Oscars. For the past two editions there has been no main host, and instead a series of stars presenting the awards. As such, the Academy could likely announce a similar format for this year’s edition.

It has been announced that Hollywood veterans, Jesse Collins, Stacey Sher, and director Steven Soderbergh, are set to produce the ceremony itself.

“We’re thrilled and terrified in equal measure. Because of the extraordinary situation we’re all in, there’s an opportunity to focus on the movies and the people who make them in a new way, and we hope to create a show that really FEELS like the movies we all love,” said the production trio in a joint statement.

The most-watched entertainment event

The Oscars are the by far most-watched entertainment event, well ahead of the likes of the Emmys, the Golden Globes and Grammys in terms of viewer numbers. While ratings in 2020 were at a record-low 23 million viewers, the telecast is still the second highest-rated annual event behind the Super Bowl.

 

When will the 2021 Oscars take place?

Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences announced back in June that the 93rd Oscars would be moved to Sunday, 25 April, 2021 due to the coronavirus pandemic – the latest date in the history of the Oscars.

The show, which was originally set to take place on 28 February, will be broadcast by ABC, and will air from multiple locations for the first time.

With the later date for this year’s ceremony, the Academy decided to extended the awards eligibility deadline from 31 December to 28 February.

“For more than a century, movies have played an important role in comforting, inspiring and entertaining us during the darkest of times,” said Academy president David Rubin and Academy CEO Dawn Hudson in a joint statement.

“They certainly have this year. Our hope, in extending the eligibility period and our awards date, is to provide the flexibility filmmakers need to finish and release their films without being penalized for something beyond anyone’s control.”
