"An actress was cast pre-COVID, and we were supposed to shoot these scenes between Sam and Barbara [Cooke] in L.A. after we wrapped in Louisiana at the beginning of March last year. And you guys know, everything shut down, and so the film, we didn't get to get these scenes until June.

The star has been one of this year’s standouts on

Is this an 'Asterisk Oscars' or a sign of things to come?

  Is this an 'Asterisk Oscars' or a sign of things to come? In 93 years of existence, the Oscars have been postponed by shootings — the assassination of Martin Luther King Jr. and the attempted killing of Ronald Reagan — and by a flood, when 1938 rainstorms overwhelmed the Los Angeles River. Sunday’s ceremony will be the first Academy Awards delayed by a pandemic. After a year that erased movie titles from marquees and sent seismic shockwaves through Hollywood, the show is going on — two months later than usual, in a crowdless ceremony at Los Angeles’ Union Station and with a batch of nominees that have barely played in movie theaters.

Carey Mulligan, Leslie Odom Jr and more seemed to find inspiration in the gold colour of the Oscars award for their red carpet style at Sunday's glitzy ceremony. A winning trend began to quickly emerge on the Oscars red carpet on Sunday night as star after star turned up in gold outifts. Much like the Oscar statue itself, stars of the big screen and beyond looked like they wanted to be recognised as winners as they stepped out in shimmering threads.

Covid-19 precautions: The Oscars are adapting to the coronavirus pandemic by having only 170 attendees at LA's Union Station this year, while Zoom appearances are banned; Union Station seen being prepared for the ceremony on Friday. In contrast with the largely virtual Golden Globes, Zoom boxes have been closed out — though numerous international hubs and satellite feeds will connect nominees unable to travel. Due to the pandemic, the audience will be significantly capped at the venues, with only 170 attendees allowed inside Union Station, according to the Los Angeles Times.

2:45 p.m.

The preparations are done and the arrivals have begun for a most unusual Oscars.

Raci, a 73-year-old first-time nominee for “Sound of Metal,” and Warren, a 12-time nominee who has never won, walked a red carpet that was heavily scaled back for the pandemic outside Union Station in downtown Los Angeles, where the ceremony is being held for the first time.

Actor Colman Domingo of multiple nominee “Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom” made the day’s first big fashion splash with a shockingly pink tuxedo.

Show producers are hoping to return some of the traditional glamour to the Oscars, even in a pandemic year.

The red carpet is back, though not the throngs; only a handful of media outlets will be allowed on site. Casual wear is a no-no.

Pulling the musical interludes (though not the in memoriam segment) from the three-hour broadcast — and drastically cutting down the time it will take winners to reach the podium — will free up a lot of time in the ceremony. And producers, led by filmmaker Steven Soderbergh, are promising a reinvented telecast.

The Oscars will look more like a movie, Soderbergh has said. The show will appear more widescreen and the presenters — including Brad Pitt, Halle Berry, Reese Witherspoon, Harrison Ford, Rita Moreno and Zendaya — are considered “cast members.” The telecast’s first 90 seconds, Soderbergh has claimed, will “announce our intention immediately.”

False posts claim to show a recent discovery of buried treasure in Arizona. The 2018 image comes from a website and there is no evidence of this find.“Just found in Arizona by someone metal detecting. That's what dreams are made of for us relic hunters,” reads an April 24 Facebook post with two images.
