Oscars 2021: date of the ceremony, nominations, presenter … All the info on the 93rd edition

The Oscars 2021 is coming soon! Who will succeed Parasite for the Oscar for best film? After Renée Zellweger and Joaquin Phoenix, which actors will win the precious statuette? Elements of answer below.

The 92nd edition of the Oscars will remain a historic edition with the crowning, for the first time, of a non-English-speaking film in the best film category with Parasite. Indeed, we must set aside The Artist, French production but entirely silent film. Bong Joon-Ho’s sparkling triumph did not eclipse Joaquin Phoenix’s victory in the Best Actor category, for his monstrous performance in Joker. In a film returning to more classic canons for the Oscars, Renée Zellweger won the statuette for best actress for her portrayal of Judy Garland in the film Judy. Brad Pitt was finally awarded the first Oscar of his long career thanks to his role in Once Upon A Time In Hollywood by Quentin Tarantino. What will be the 2021 winners, in the context of a year turned upside down by the health crisis and the long-awaited film postponements? Will the rise of SVOD platforms like Netflix continue to be felt in the nominations? All information on the Oscars 2021.

Date of the ceremony

First scheduled for February 28, 2021, the 93rd Academy Awards will finally be held Sunday April 25, 2021. As a result, the eligibility period for films for the precious statuette has also been changed: all films released in theaters in the United States up to the deadline of February 28 can compete.

French chances

France will be represented by Florian Zeller whose film The Father collects no less than 6 nominations including that of the best film and the best actor for Anthony Hopkins.

Presenter

In 2019 and 2020, the Academy of Oscars chose not to use a single emcee. This will be the case again this year: in the absence of a single presenter, many actors will follow one another to announce and present the prizes. From Brad Pitt to Halle Berry via Harrison Ford, the list of stars present is also quite impressive. Director Steven Soderbergh is leading the organization of the ceremony, supported by former Grammy Awards producer Jesse Collins and producer Stacey Sher (Django Unchained).

On February 10, the Academy announced that the evening would be broadcast simultaneously from several locations. When the nominations were announced on March 15, David Rubin, the president of the Academy, clarified that the 93rd Oscars ceremony will take place in the flesh, in the legendary hall of the Dolby Theater in Hollywood as well as than in the famous Union Station in the Downtown district of Los Angeles. A letter has been sent to all applicants informing them that they will need to be physically present if they wish to receive their trophy, unlike the last Golden Globes. They will not be able to participate virtually in the ceremony, and will also have to appear in evening dress.

TV broadcast

In the United States, the Oscars will be broadcast again on ABC: the American channel holds the rights to the ceremony until 2028. In France, as usual, it is Canal + which will take care of the live, encrypted retransmission on the night of April 25 to 26, 2021.
