Deadline Hollywood reports:
Deadline hears that the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences is seriously considering locating the 93rd Academy Awards at Union Station, the cavernous main railway station in Los Angeles. Nothing is set yet, but sources said that is the venue AMPAS and ABC favor at the moment.
Even though the nominations will be revealed Monday and the 93rd Oscarcast’s April 25 date is fast approaching , so much of this is still fluid.
That includes where and how it will be held, and whether or not there will be a host. The hope is to have a crowd and nominees, and the Academy cannot hold the ceremony in the Dolby Theatre, because of Covid considerations.
