Oscars 2021: What To Expect From 93rd Academy Awards

25 Apr, 2021 14:56 IST|Sakshi Post

The much-awaited Oscars, the 93rd Academy Awards ceremony will take place on April 25 in Los Angeles. This year, the Oscars 2021 is going to be a bit different. Due to the coronavirus pandemic, a grand event is going to take place with very few people. The producer and organiser of Oscars 2021, Stacey Sher, said at a virtual press conference that this year, there won't be a traditional red carpet. "It's not a traditional red carpet, it's a teeny-tiny red carpet. It's a very small footprint for safety reasons, obviously."

Chloe Zhao’s drama Nomadland is likely to win the best picture award followed by the Chadwick Boseman starrer Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom. Two female directors have been nominated for the first time.

The late Chadwick Boseman (Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom), British Black actor Daniel Kaluuya (Judas And The Black Messiah) and South Korean star Youn Yuh-Jung (Minari) are frontrunners in the acting categories.

Chadwick Boseman has been posthumously nominated in the best actor category. Chloe Zhao could be a winner for best director. The grand event will take place at the 1930s-built Union Station, known for its Spanish colonial and Art Deco stylings. There will not be any host this time too. A total of 170 people are going to attend the event. 

The nominees and the presenters will not be required to wear protective face mask coverings while cameras are rolling because the ceremony is taking place at two main venues, Hollywood's Dolby Theatre and downtown Los Angeles' historic Union Station. Those in attendance not on camera should wear their face masks.

Here is the full list of nominations.
