Reaction to the new look of the Oscars It was met with a strong response from the industry. Although some of the craft guilds were diplomatic, their public statements hinted at painful feelings. However, multiple sources say diverse that there are currently discussions among members of the Music Branch to call for boycott candidates, and appeal to candidates for the best original score – Nicholas Brittel (“Don’t Look for”), Jermaine Franco (“Incanto”), Johnny Greenwood (“Dog Power”) and Alberto Iglesias (” Parallel Mothers”) and Hans Zimmer (“Dunes”) – for not attending the party in protest. There are also calls for members of the board of directors and other branches to advocate for artisans in all of these categories.

Seating capacity for Dolby Theatre, where is Oscars It is 3300 but in an effort to keep attendance safe, it will be reduced to around 2500.
The standard volume of Dolby’s main orchestras normally holds around 1460, which includes Parterre. This area will be reduced to about 600, with the main level containing about 212 attendees. Says a source close to the production team diverse There will also be “decorating benches,” similar to last year’s TV broadcast, with tables and chairs to fill in.

All other attendees will be seated on the mezzanine.
As in the last year, there will be intermittent arrival times for candidates, to prevent congestion and bottlenecks.
The eight classes are expected to be submitted and awarded in about 30 to 40 minutes, starting with one hour before the telecast begins. During that time, the leading A-list candidates are expected to be out of Dolby, walking the red carpet 900 feet, taking photos, and completing interviews with publications and networks.
Academy sources have stated that the eight winners’ acceptance speeches will be broadcast during the telecast, but it remains unclear whether the speeches themselves will be edited.
