On Sunday evening in the US, Monday morning Australian time, the 93rd Academy Awards will get underway.

This year’s Oscars come as America’s film industry wrestles with the continuing effects of the pandemic which delayed movie releases and shut cinemas.

Many of the best-picture nominees aren’t as high-profile as previous years with some released onto streaming services.

Today on Please Explain, David King speaks with LA-based Culture Editor-at-Large Michael Idato about how the 2021 Oscars awards ceremony will be quite different as organisers seek to run a COVID-safe event that will still provide viewers a visual spectacle.
