Outbreaks appear to be exacerbated during the Coronavirus epidemic, which has led to the closure of cinemas and the suspension of film releases.
Due to this, other film festivals including Cannes Film Festival have also been canceled.
For the first time in history, the film industry is facing suspension and cancellation due to an illness And the epidemic could cost the global film industry $10-15 billion.
Due to the lockdown imposed to prevent the spread of the coronavirus, where movies have not been shown in the world for the past few months,
Last month, the most prestigious award in the film world, Oscar, also amended its rules and announced to nominate those films for the award which could not be released due to Corona.
And now there are rumors that the Oscars may be postponed for a few months.
The British newspaper The Sun reported that officials from The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, the Oscar-winning committee for the most prestigious film award in the film world, have begun considering postponing the awards ceremony for a few months.
According to the report, due to the coronavirus, many major films could not be released this year, and film studios and production companies have suggested that the Oscars be postponed for a few months.
The report said that the screening of several major films, including the 25th film in the James Bond series, has been postponed this year and is likely to be postponed further.
And it looks like the big movies won't be released until the end of this year.
Due to Corona, if the big films are not released this year, the Oscars will face difficulties in nominations and if the films are released in December 2020 and January 2021, the Academy will also have some difficulties in nominations.
So far, though, no film studio or production house has explicitly asked the Oscar Academy to postpone the awards ceremony.
Nor have senior academy officials hinted at postponing the awards ceremony.
However, it is thought the event could be postponed for a few months.
It is possible that the awards ceremony will be held in April or May 2021 instead of February, but it is too early to say.
If the Oscars are postponed for a few months this time, it will be the first time in 93 years that the awards ceremony has been postponed due to an illness.
The Oscars will be held on February 28, 2021, in Los Angeles, USA, and this year will be the 93rd.
There have been only three occasions in the last 92 years when the Oscars have been postponed for a maximum of one week and a minimum of one day.
The first Oscar ceremony in 1938 was postponed for a week after the worst floods in Los Angeles.
The awards ceremony was postponed for a week for the second time after the death of Martin Luther King, Jr., an American politician and social activist in 1968.
Similarly, the Oscars were postponed for a third and last time for a day in 1981 when the 40th President of the United States, Ronald Reagan, was assassinated.
This time, if the Oscars are postponed, it will be the first time that it has been postponed due to an illness, and it will be the fourth time in the history of the Oscars as a whole and the first time in the last 40 years.
The first ceremony of the award was held in 1929 and its ceremonies were held even during the tense situation of World War II.
Actors from all over the world want to win at least one Oscar in their lifetime, but there are millions of actors and filmmakers around the world who have never received one.
