Oscars 2021 - Everything You Need To Know About The 93rd Academy Awards
Over time, the Oscars have brought us some of the greatest moments of pop culture in history.
For example, the wrong winning drama “Best Film” from 2017. Jennifer Lawrence stumbles on stage to collect her gong as best actress, Michael Moore's anti-President Bush speech in 2003 and lots of memorable clothes.
At the Oscars 2020, Renée Zellweger, Laura Dern, Bong Joon Ho, Brad Pitt and Joaquin Phoenix won golden gongs for their roles in some of the year's most outstanding films, including Parasite and Judy.
However, we knew little about the fact that the world would be hit by the coronavirus pandemic weeks later and that several awards ceremonies and events such as the Cannes Film Festival and the Met Gala would be put on hold for the foreseeable future.
Here's everything you need to know about next year's Academy Awards:
When are the 2020 Oscars?

Until the early 2000s, the Oscars were held in March or April, before the Academy moved them to an appointment in February.
In addition to postponing the event, the BBC reports that the organizers of the ceremony extended the qualification window for awards from December 31 to the end of February next year.
"This is a much-needed boost for those films that may have stayed in post-production," a member of the academy recently told Variety.
The BAFTAs were also postponed to April 11, with no official date changes announced for either the Golden Globes or the SAG Awards.
Who is nominated for an Oscar this year?
It is not known which actors, directors, musicians, producers and films will be nominated for an Oscar next year.
Nominations will be announced on March 15, before the ceremony airs on ABC.

Who is presenting the 2021 Oscars?
After years of controversial hosts and the job that was jokingly described as one of the worst in Hollywood, the Oscars continued their theme of being hostless in 2020.
Instead of having a moderator during the ceremony, there were a number of stars who instead gave individual awards and performances.

Here are just a few of the familiar names introduced at the ceremony:
Jane Fonda, Josh Gad, Tom Hanks, Oscar Isaac, Sandra Oh, Natalie Portman, Chris Rock, Mahershala Ali, Zazie Beetz, Timothée Chalamet, Olivia Colman, Penélope Cruz, Mütze Feldstein, Will Ferrell, Gal Gadot, Salma Hayek, Mindy Kaling , Regina King, Shia LaBeouf, Brie Larson, Spike Lee, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Rami Malek, Steve Martin, Lin-Manuel Miranda, Keanu Reeves, Maya Rudolph, Mark Ruffalo, Kelly Marie Tran, Sigourney Weaver, Kristen Wiig and Rebel Wilson .
It remains to be seen whether the organizers of the ceremony will follow the same format next year.
Who will appear at the 2021 Oscars?
It wouldn't be the Academy Awards without a few memorable appearances like John Legend and Common's moving "Glory" number in 2015, the star-studded Les Miserables performance in 2013, or the much-debated performance of "Shallows" by Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper.

It is not known who will perform at the 2021 ceremony, but Cynthia Erivo, Elton John, Idina Menzel, Chrissy Metz and Randy Newman played their Oscar-nominated songs at the 2020 event.
Eminem also surprised the participants with his replay of "Lose Yourself", which led to quite amusing reactions from the audience.

In the UK, the Oscars are usually broadcast live on Sky Cinema's Sky Cinema Oscars channel. Holders of a NOW TV Sky Cinema Pass can therefore follow the negotiations live from the USA.
