Oscars Delayed – level 1

19-06-2020 15:00

The Oscars are the most important awards in film. Every February, the best movies, artists, and filmmakers can get Oscars.

However, the next Oscars will be different. The organization for the Oscars changes the date. The date of the next Oscars is the 25th April, 2021. The reason is the coronavirus.

The coronavirus has a big impact on movies. Filmmakers do not make new movies. People cannot go to theaters. Theaters do not show new movies.

The organization makes different rules. It is possible to show movies until the end of February. These movies can get the Oscars. Usually, movies must be in theaters until December.

Difficult words: award (a special prize that someone gets for good work), filmmaker (someone who makes a movie), impact (what happens when something else happens).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
