The 94th edition of the Oscar ceremony is almost here. This year, the awards ceremony will be fully in person despite the pandemic and will take place at the Dolby Theater in Los Angeles on Sunday, March 27. Nearly 2,500 people will attend the gala on a night in which the progress in the fight against covid will not free the protagonists, the nominees, from the obligation to present a vaccination certificate and up to two negative PCR tests. Also the guests and companions of these must comply with the same conditions. Those who will not be subject to these requirements are the presenters and artists who perform at the ceremony, who will also be subject to other controls that have not been specified.
As a novelty, in this edition the ABC network has forced the Hollywood Film Academy to change the format a bit to speed up the ceremony. Eight prizes will be awarded one hour before the start of the television broadcast of the event. The production will then edit the recording of these awards and integrate them into the live broadcast. The affected categories are the following: short documentary, montage, makeup and hairdressing, soundtrack (where Alberto Iglesias competes, for parallel mothers), production design, animated short (another category with a Spanish presence, thanks to The Windshield Wiper, by Alberto Mielgo), fiction and sound short film.
Netflix is still battling to win its first Best Picture Oscar with the power of the dogtitle with the most nominations of 2022 (12 nominations), and don’t look up (which also competes for the main award). Against, the great rival is CODA, the Sundance winner, and bought by Apple TV.
