Guests and attendees of the live Oscar show taking place on Sunday April, would not be required to wear masks.

The Academy of Motion Pictures Art and Sciences (The Academy Awards), made this announcement on Monday after a Zoom meeting with stakeholders, representatives, nominees and publicists.

The ceremony which will hold at Union Station in downtown LA, would rotate guests in congregations of 170 people, in and out of the event center and would be shot like a movie.

Producer Stacey Sher during a press conference said “… i think you have to look at the films as well, they’re beautiful, they’re moving, sometimes they’re painful, but we need to have hope to move forward. So we have to acknowledge what we’ve been through, and the historic losses we’ve been through, but we also have to fight for cinema and our love of it and the way it has gotten us through things,” she said.
