The Oscars will be awarded at two different locations in Los Angeles this year. The event takes place on April 26 at the Dolby Theater as much as in the lobby of the Union Station train station, writes Deadline.
The American film website previously wrote about the two locations, but those were still rumors at the time. Now, however, the coverage is being confirmed by the president of the Academy of Motion Pictures and Sciences, the organization behind the Oscars.
The presenters, nominees and their guests will be received in the train station. In this place it will be easier to observe the corona measures.
It is not yet known exactly what function the station and the Dolby Theater, where the awards usually always take place, will have.
The president of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences also announced that all other traditional events surrounding the ceremony have been canceled.
That means that the lunch for the nominees, which each year provides a group photo, and the official after-party, the Governors Ball, will not take place.
Film with Dutch actors has a chance of winning an Oscar
The nominations for the Oscars were announced on Monday. The Bosnian Movie Quo vadis, Aida? about the fall of Srebrenica has been nominated for an Oscar in the category best international film.
The film features Dutch actors Raymond Thiry, Reinout Bussemaker and Juda Goslinga. The film is also co-produced by the Dutch company N279 Entertainment.
The movie released on Netflix Limp director David Fincher is the top contender at the award ceremony with nominations in ten categories.
