After a year of a pandemic that shut down most cinemas, potential best picture candidates won’t have any box office to talk about. The Oscars will be not only without the blockbuster movies but with many films that are barely shown on the big screen. Live Streaming Services are set to dominate the Biggest and Most Popular Hollywood Awards.

The Academy of Film and ABC, which will be broadcasting the Oscars on April 25 (delayed two months due to the pandemic), hope the nominees can spark more excitement than they have anywhere else. Interest in small golden statues decreased during the pandemic. Hypothetical Golden Globe ratings have fallen dramatically, with letters of acceptance from Zoom, to 6.9 million viewers – a 64% drop from 2020 – last month.

With the notable exception of an increasing number of streaming subscribers, the pandemic has been punishing the movie industry. Production has slowed considerably, blockbuster films have been postponed or diverted to the stream and thousands have been laid off or on leave.

But the outlook for Hollywood has gotten brighter lately, with fewer cases of coronavirus and more vaccines. Cinemas are reopening in the two largest markets in the United States, New York and Los Angeles. Several big movies – including The Walt Disney Company “Black Widow” (May 7) – are due to be shown in May and beyond.

Film Academy President David Rubin said Monday that the April 25 show will be held at the Dolby Theater in Los Angeles as well as the transportation hub, Union Station. Expect broadcasters to do their best to entice viewers back into the cinema.
