I've heard Hollywood is a ghost town of former actors and actresses. Most have been dealt with one way or another. A lot of my posts on actors is in another thread (Things That Make You Say "What?" link)
Tom Hanks, Oprah, just to name two of the biggest "celebrities".
In March they held the Grammy awards and it was all handled remotely. Lots of "technical glitches" during the show was reported. All ha ha's by those reporting. Yeah right. Lots of family shots in celebrities homes. More like holograms. Because these people are dead or soon will be.
Tomorrow night will be the big Oscar awards ceremony. Again it's going to be a "limited in-person ceremony". They say it's going to wow all us watching at home. I'm sure more holograms. Since these people are non-existent.
Here's a quote from the article I read: Forced to rethink the ceremony because of the pandemic, and with a slate of diverse but mostly smaller films, organizers are promising a show unlike anything seen in the 93-year history of the Academy Awards.
Love that! Smaller films. Ha ha! Because there are no big blockbusters anymore. No big stars, no directors, producers, zilch, nada, zero.
I just decided to put mine on Record and skip through it tomorrow.
Found this: Tonight: Wokest Oscars Ever?
There will be no host, no audience, nor face masks for nominees attending the ceremony at Los Angeles’ Union Station — this year’s hub for a show usually broadcast from the Dolby Theatre....
...only a handful of media outlets will be allowed on site.
...The Oscars will look more like a movie, Soderbergh has said. The show will be shot in 24 frames-per-second (as opposed to 30), appear more widescreen and the presenters — including Brad Pitt, Halle Berry, Reese Witherspoon, Harrison Ford, Rita Moreno and Zendaya — are considered “cast members.”
...But the night’s top prize, best picture, is widely expected to go to Chloé Zhao’s “Nomadland,” a contemplative character study about an itinerant woman (Frances McDormand) in the American West. Should it be victorious, it will be one of the lowest budget best-picture winners ever. Gee, I wonder why. link
