Welcome to WION's coverage of Oscars 2021! 

Hollywood's biggest night, the Academy Awards is scheduled to take place in Union Station, Los Angeles and the Dolby Theatre at the Hollywood & Highland Center on Sunday, April 25, 2021. Owing to the pandemic, Oscars 2021 has been pushed from February to April and it set to honour the best of cinema from the past year- which was unprecedented.  

About the  Oscars Ceremony 

Unlike other award shows this year, which linked in most of the nominees via Zoom, Oscars 2021 will be an in-person gathering with limited nominees, presenters and guests in attendance.  But unlike other years, the Academy Awards take place from two separate locations- Union Station in downtown Los Angeles and the traditional home of the Academy Awards at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood. 

About the  Oscars Presenters  

The Academy revealed the presenters in a video this year- much like a film trailer. Angela Bassett, Halle Berry, Bong Joon Ho, Don Cheadle, Bryan Cranston, Laura Dern, Harrison Ford, Regina King, Marlee Matlin, Rita Moreno, Joaquin Phoenix, Brad Pitt, Reese Witherspoon, Renée Zellweger and Zendaya will be presenting at the Oscars 2021.  

About the  Oscars Nominees 2021

Chadwick Boseman is widely expected to pick up the posthumous Best Actor award for 'Ma Rainey's Black Bottom'. The other frontrunner this year is Chloe Zhao and her film 'Nomadland'.  Other favourites include 'Mank', 'Minari' and actors Riz Ahmed for 'Sound Of Metal', and Vanessa Kirby for 'Pieces of a Woman'. 

About the  Oscars Performers 2021

It will be interesting to see how the organiser, The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences (or simply, the Academy) attempts to make the event entertaining in a year that will see limited audience. So far, no announcement has been made about the performers for the awards night, although the pre-show may have Best Song nominees performing. The Oscars 2021 will have no host. This is third year in a row that the event will have no singular host.
