The Academy Awards usually require that an eligible film run for seven days in a commercial movie theater in Los Angeles County. But this year, with many movies unable to open in regular theaters due to the coronavirus outbreak and moving instead to streaming services, the Oscars are shifting their rules.
After a meeting on Tuesday, the Academy announced that its board of governors is putting a temporary hold on that in-theater requirement. In a statement, the group said it will consider films that were released digitally and did not play in theaters. The movies must have had a planned theatrical release and be made eligible for Academy members to view via streaming.
