Oscars 2022 Won’t be Aired Live
Earlier this year, academy president David Rubin stated that after carefully listening to feedback and suggestions from the film community, their partner network, and all those who love the Oscars, they needed to make some decisions about the broadcast that are in the best interests of their show and organization. Additionally, they explained how they wanted to increase viewer engagement by prioritizing the television audience, adding that “every awards category must be televised, although eight awards will initially be presented in the Dolby Theatre before the live broadcast begins.”
In addition, it was mentioned that these awards categories would not be presented during the pre-show nor on the red carpet, instead, the in-person ceremony at the Dolby Theatre would begin one hour earlier to present eight awards categories before the live telecast begins. They will then edit the presentation and add it to the live broadcast.
In addition, it was informed that all the nominees in all awards categories will be announced on air, and the winners’ acceptance speeches will be broadcast live. The letter stated that people watching from home will not experience any changes in the flow of the event.
