On April 25th, 2021, the 93rd Academy Awards will be taking place in Los Angeles. But unlike the Golden Globes and Grammys that already took place earlier this year, there will be no Zoom element in this ceremony. Instead, reports say it will be an intimate, outdoor evening with all of the nominees. "We are going to great lengths to provide a safe and ENJOYABLE evening for all of you in person, as well as for all the millions of film fans around the world," read the letter outlining the details of the event from the Oscars telecast. "We feel the virtual thing will diminish those efforts."
