Could the Oscars be postponed?

Could Hollywood’s biggest night be postponed because of the coronavirus pandemic?

According to reports, the Academy is considering moving the ceremony from its current date of 28th February.

Variety reports “multiple sources” say it’s “likely” the awards will be postponed.

The Academy has already made changes to the rules in terms of eligibility.

Under the usual rules, a film must have a seven-day theatrical release in Los Angeles County to qualify for Oscar eligibility. But for this year, films released digitally can qualify if the studio had originally planned a theatrical release.

The Academy has declined to comment on Variety’s story.
