Streamed films temporarily made eligible to compete at next year's Oscars due to coronavirus




Streamed movies will qualify to contend at the following year's Oscars, according to the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences in Hollywood. The progressions have been made due to the coronavirus epidemic. Up to now, just movies that had been given a full film release and had run for at least a week in a Los Angeles cinema were qualified. With the pandemic constraining films, various movies have been transferred directly to streaming sites. President David Rubin and Chief Executive Dawn Hudson stated: "The Academy solidly accepts that there is no more noteworthy approach to encounter the enchantment of motion pictures than to see them in a theater. "Our promise to that is unaltered and enduring. In any case, the generally heartbreaking Covid-19 pandemic requires this brief special case to our honors qualification rules." The conventional guidelines will be restored once the pandemic is finished.
