Variety offered several thoughts about if and how the Academy Awards could happen in 2021.

Speculation is that if the ceremony does take place, it could be a virtual event. With coronavirus still present, the likelihood of celebrities wanting to gather in the same auditorium for hours is slim.

The Oscars might be postponed to a later time as well for a couple of reasons.

If theaters don’t reopen everywhere and movie studios don’t release films, there may not be a good enough crop of contenders for all of the categories.

The lack of content could push the ceremony past February 2021.
