MUMBAI: Home to the prestigious Oscars for over two decades, Star Movies is all set to bring alive the magic of the 93rd Oscars ceremony live and exclusively for its viewers on 26 April, starting 5:30 am.

Colloquially known as Oscars, the Academy Awards are considered the most prestigious awards in the world of cinema. The awards ceremony was initially scheduled to take place on 28 February, but was later postponed to 26 April amid the Covid2019 pandemic.

Marking the end of the awards season, Oscars 2021 will be telecasted live 5:30 am onwards on Star Movies and Star World. The awards ceremony will simultaneously air on Star Movies Select and Star World Premiere. Keeping up with the festive fervour, the awards will be aired once again on the same day at 8:30 pm.

With the current situation in mind, the Academy has gone to utmost lengths to assure maximum safety of those attending. For the third year in a row, the 93rd Oscars will be conducted without any host. However stars like, Joaquin Phoenix, Brad Pitt, Reese Witherspoon, Halle Berry, Zendaya will be seen presenting. The audience capacity has been limited to 170 this year.

Despite fewer film releases, the competition is tough across categories. With nominations announced almost a month ago, viewers are now on the edge to know the winners.

This year, female directors broke the record for maximum number of nominations, with Chloé Zhao (Nomadland) and Emerald Fennell (Promising Young Woman) competing for the best director award.

Legendary veteran actor Sir Anthony Hopkins is the oldest best actor nominee ever and could become the oldest winner as well at 83.

India has a special moment this year with Bollywood actress Priyanka Chopra’s The White Tiger being nominated in the Best Adapted Screenplay category. The nomination comes in after almost 20 years since Lagaan. The other film being closely watched is Man’ which has received a total of 10 nominations leaving behind The Father, Judas and the Black Messiah, Minari, Nomadland, Sound of Metal and The Trial of the Chicago 7 that have received six nominations each.
