Although most of the big award nights of the year moved to a virtual platform owing to the surge in coronavirus cases, the biggest night in Hollywood will still be in-person, confirmed the Academy to Variety.
A representative of ABC and the Academy told the outlet, “The Oscars in-person telecast will happen.”
This comes after the ceremony was postponed by two months in the hopes of the Academy being able to see more films that would qualify for the deadline during the extended period.
The source revealed to the publication that the event will not be delayed further and would still be held at Los Angeles’s Dolby Theatre, according to plan.
“The academy has done a walkthrough of the Dolby recently to see all the multiple options,” it was further revealed by the insider.
