Awards Season news

Now that the 2021 Oscars have officially been delayed from February 28 to April 25, 2021, many other award shows and festivals that play a crucial role on the Oscar season circuit are also changing their dates.

The Critics Choice Association (CCA) has announced the 2021 ceremony will take place March 7, 2021. The event will once again be hosted by Taye Diggs and be broadcast live on The CW network. The ceremony will continue by handing out its film and television awards in a single ceremony. The Critics Choice Awards usually take place in January in between the Golden Globes and the Oscar nominations announcement (the 2020 awards show took place January 12), but the 2021 ceremony is moving to March now that the 2021 Oscars are set for April.

Television nominations for the 2021 Critics Choice Awards will be announced January 18, 2021, followed by the announcement of film nominations on February 7, 2021.

The Film Independent Spirit Awards, which has traditionally been held the day before the Oscars, has followed the Academy’s lead and are now planning to hold its ceremony on April 24, 2021.

The 2021 BAFTA Film Awards are on the move following the announcement that the 93rd Academy Awards are being delayed by two months. The 2021 BAFTA ceremony was set to take place February 14 but will now be held on April 11 2021. The 2021 Oscars are taking place April 25, eight weeks after the original February 28 date. The BAFTAs are the first major awards ceremony to push back its 2021 ceremony date following the Oscars delay.

While critics groups weigh their year-end timing as buzz-boosters for awards contenders, the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, which usually stages its glitzy awards fete in early January, has grabbed the February 28 date abandoned by the Oscars for the 78th Golden Globes celebration.

The Academy has moved the 93rd Oscar ABC telecast two months later to April 25, when Oscar voters will honour the best films released between January 2020 and February 2021. In the next few weeks, the HFPA will provide their latest set of revised eligibility requirements: submissions are usually due no later than the first week of December, around the same time the critics groups start voting.

The 2021 Globes will be hosted by comedians Tina Fey and Amy Poehler and will air live coast to coast from 5-8 p.m. PT/8-11 p.m. ET on NBC. The show is available in more than 210 territories worldwide.
