If you’re an Oscar nominee this year we’re terribly sorry but you’re not going to be able to wear your joggers with your tuxedo or couture – you’ve been banned from attending the 2021 Academy Awards ceremony anything less than in person, according to reports.
The awards – arguably the biggest in the calendar – are set to take place next month at Union Station in downtown Los Angeles. Nominees were announced last week with the likes of Maria Bakalova, Viola Davis, and the late Chadwick Boseman up for gongs.
British hopefuls include Olivia Colman, Carey Mulligan, Riz Ahmed, Sir Anthony Hopkins and Emerald Fennell.
While some live elements will still take place at its usual home of the Dolby Theatre, the relocation of the 93rd awards is hopefully the only difference punters will notice with Deadline reporting a letter sent out by producers told nominees phoning in via Zoom is banned. (Metro)
