Oscars 2021 - Pushed Back by Two Months *BAFTA's also moved*



BAFTA on Monday said that its next EE British Academy Film Awards will now be held on April 11, 2021, keeping in line with the Oscars which earlier in the day shifted its 2021 date to April 25 in response to the coronavirus pandemic.

The move will certainly be the first of many as the guilds and precursor film-awards groups shuffle their dates to line up the season, which has been shut down by COVID-19.




The 2021 Oscars will go on — just not on Feb. 28.

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences announced on Monday that the 93rd Academy Awards telecast has been postponed two months to April 25, 2021. Variety was the first to report in mid-May that the Academy was considering delaying the big night in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic.
