A new detail about the 2021 Oscars telecast was just revealed.

According to Variety, masks are “not required for people on camera.” Why? Because the Oscars is actually being treated like a TV/film production and following those guidelines. However, when attendees are NOT on camera, they are being asked to put their masks back on. An example of when they may need to put their masks on would be during a commercial break when there’s no one on camera.
Audience members will be rotated in and out due to capacity rules, and only 170 people will be allowed in the audience.
