    It’s not happening via Zoom. What the TV Academy are doing is they are sending around 140 state-of-the-art cameras to the homes of each nominee (or less depending on if the nominees live together like the Palladinos) and linking them up to the Staples centre as a live stream (a bit like when you see reporters linked up on election night).

    Link for more info below :

    FYC OSCARS : VANESSA KIRBY FOR "PIECES OF A WOMAN", GLENN CLOSE FOR "HILLBILLY ELEGY", ANTHONY HOPKINS FOR "THE FATHER", CHADWICK BOSEMAN FOR "MA RAINEY'S BLACK BOTTOM", PROMISING YOUNG WOMAN (BEST ORIGINAL SCREENPLAY).

    H.E.R. (In Memoriam)

    Will she be performing “I Can’t Breathe”? Because if they include those killed by police brutality in the In Memoriam, that could be a very impactful moment.

    I imagine JJ Watts will honor Kobe Bryant?

    Is that actually on the cards to have police brutality victims mixed into the industry In Memoriam? I can’t help but feel that is so tokenistic and unhelpful to the cause, and will only result in Black winners on the night being further tokenised for their wins.

    Yeah, even with the best intentions it would be grossly inappropriate to mix those victims with industry pros.

    I agree. I hope it’s not what the Academy decides to do, because it would be tone-deaf as hell, but with that song having just come out by H.E.R., I’m scared that’s the path they’re thinking about going down.

    Yuck. Hollywood externalising its racism … “look, over there!”

    They can’t avoid talking about racial unrest/police brutality/BLM, just like they can’t avoid talking about covid or the presidential election. That’s the landscape. H.E.R. is a very talented and tasteful artist. I don’t think she’ll do something in poor taste or tokenistic.

    Not only would it be tokenistic and inappropriate, it would also be disrespectful to those being honored in the memoriam. As their deaths would be used as a political message. And many of them had nothing to do with the movement.

    FYC Oscars: Chloe Zhao (Nomadland), Delroy Lindo (Da 5 Bloods), Jeremy Strong (Trail of the Chicago 7), Viola Davis and Chadwick Boseman (Ma Rainey's Black Bottom), Soul (Best Animated Feature Film and Best Original Screenplay), "No Time to Die" (Best Original Song)

    I see that H.E.R. has been announced as performing and the ensuing discussion has a whole lot of outrage about something else, which has neither happened nor been confirmed. Another day on the Internet!
