Odds that an in-character Borat presents an award?March 23, 2021 at 9:53 am #1204152933
That time slot is such a kick in the balls to every nominee east of the United States who is dialling in.March 23, 2021 at 4:10 pm #1204153721
As someone who’ll be tuning in from Greenwich Mean Time, I’m delighted by the timing. How high are the odds we may actually get one of the shortest ceremonies in recent memory this year? Especially since they combines the sound categories now.March 23, 2021 at 5:21 pm #1204153895
If I’m not mistaken they’re not doing any Zooming for the nominees and presenters.
That’s correct. They have to attend in person or not be part of the ceremony. I feel like they reached out to the acting nominees and got their willingness to be there (at least 17-18 range committing) before making that decision.March 24, 2021 at 3:10 am #1204154645
I do wonder about the attendance of some of the nominees such as Anthony Hopkins and Olivia Colman.March 24, 2021 at 3:22 am #1204154654
If Hopkins does attend it will be extremely surprising. He’s known to be very unfazed by awards in general. I hope he does. His all-time great performance, even in a little clip, deserves to be highlighted, win or no win.March 24, 2021 at 3:32 am #1204154658
I think supporting Florian & the film itself will be incentive for Anthony & Olivia, more so than their own nominations.
FYC EMMYS: THE CROWN IN ALL CATEGORIES (ESP. OLIVIA COLMAN - D. ACTRESS & HBC - D. SUPP. ACTRESS) & IT’S A SIN IN ALL CATEGORIES (ESP. LYDIA WEST - LIM. ACTRESS & KEELEY HAWES - LIM. SUPP. ACTRESS) & I MAY DESTROY YOU IN ALL CATEGORIESMarch 24, 2021 at 8:14 am #1204155022
I am glad we are not doing stupid zoom. Yes the pandemic is not over but those acceptance speeches in video are so lameMarch 24, 2021 at 3:43 pm #1204156107
If the Academy doesn’t change this, it’s very likely that Emerald Fennell won’t be able to accept her Original Screenplay Oscar due to travel restrictions from the UK.
