Oscars set new ceremony date + eligibility extension ++ Emmy news

Rumored to be announced this weekend, the Academy Board of Governors meet today and made the following new rules on this year's Oscars:

-- The ceremony has been postponed two months to April 25, 2021. It will still happen at the Dolby Theater and will still air live on ABC.
-- Films released in January and February of 2021 will now be eligible.
-- Nominations will be announced March 15.
-- The Governors Awards, held as a seperate event in November, has been canceled. Honorees and how they will be honoed will be announced at a later date.
-- The Sci-Tech Awards ceremony planned for June has also been postponed.

The Television Academy also had their own announcements to make today in regards to its award ceremonies:

-- The Creative Arts Emmys, previously set for September 12 & 13, will now be virtual over not-yet-scheduled nights in September.
-- The Governor's Ball afterparties after both the Creative Arts and Primetime ceremonies have been canceled.
-- Primetime Emmy ceremony is still scheduled to take place September 20, but ABC and the TV Academy haven't said how (tho in-person seems incredibly unlikely given the changes they just made today).
