But the ceremony and gala dinner will be held as planned.
The American Academy of Motion Picture Arts and change the format of the ceremony of the special honorary award for his services to the film, which will be held on November 18 in Hollywood, said the publication The Hollywood Reporter.
Usually the ceremony begins with the red carpet, on which greet nominees and other celebrities – many of them later compete in the nominations of the main “Oscar”. Stars pose for photos against the background of press oxen with the logo of the academy and give short interviews to journalists on camera.
Because of the effects of California fires, the academy will shorten the red carpet procession to limit only celebrity photography. Traditional interview will not be. At the same time, the ceremony itself and the gala dinner after it will be held as planned.
The Governors Awards is an annual ceremony that precedes the Oscar. Its main features are a small number of nominations compared to the main prize and the absence of a worldwide broadcast. The Hollywood Reporter called the Governors Awards “the second night of the year” of the academy after the Oscar itself.
