LOS ANGELES, June 15 (Reuters) - The organizers of the Oscars on Monday shifted the date of the 2021 movie awards ceremony to April from February because of the coronavirus epidemic.
The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences said the Oscars, the highest honors in the film industry, would take place on April 25, 2021. It was originally scheduled for Feb. 28. The coronavirus epidemic shut down movie theaters worldwide in mid-March and brought production of films to a halt.
