The Oscars will be held on April 25 instead of February 28 in response to the coronavirus pandemic. Additionally, the eligibility cutoff date for feature films has been extended from December 31 to February 28. This is “to provide the flexibility filmmakers need to finish and release their films without being penalized for something beyond anyone’s control,” the Academy says. The Academy added that the awards ceremony will air live from Hollywood’s Dolby Theatre on ABC, rejecting the possibility of a pre-taped or virtual ceremony.
