List of Hollywood Awards shows and events canceled amid Omicron Surge – The Hollywood Reporter


As Hollywood heads for the peak of Oscar season, live events are in limbo amid a global wave of COVID-19 cases linked to the omicron variant.

The AFI Awards, BAFTA Tea Party and Palm Springs International Film Festival Awards Gala were among the first in-person events canceled as the industry grapples with another grim part of the ongoing pandemic . The Hollywood Critics Association and Critics Choice Awards quickly followed, each deciding to postpone their events (the 5th annual HCA Film Awards until February 28), citing the growing number of positive omicron cases. The 12th annual Academy Governors Awards, which was slated for Jan.15, has also been postponed, as Fox became the first network to cancel its scheduled New Years Eve show.

The Sundance Film Festival, an annual staple in Park City, Utah, has gone online only, with the wave of variations set to peak during the festival’s duration from Jan. 20-30. The Slamdance Film Festival has also decided to forgo the in-person portion of its hybrid event in Park City, which was scheduled to run January 20-23, and will only continue with the virtual portion of the program, January 27-February 6. The new start date, a week later than expected, gives the festival time to move into the online format.

The Grammy Awards, originally scheduled for January 31 in Los Angeles, have been postponed to a date yet to be determined. And a handful of Hollywood premieres in January, including the latest film in the Scream franchise, upcoming Hulu How i met your father series and the Peacemaker film – have canceled events on the red carpet in person.

Live theater productions, including those in London’s West End, New York’s Broadway district and Los Angeles, have been particularly hit by the darkening shows. Several Broadway productions have canceled performances during Christmas week, with Small jagged pill and off Broadway Is there still sex in town? close their curtains for good. that of Eddie Redmayne Cabaret the revival in London took a temporary hiatus, with performances resuming at the end of December.
