While the emergence of Covid-19 led to many changes in the entertainment industries, The Oscars 2021 has also changed some of its rules for the films. Earlier for a film to be eligible for the awards had to be released in the United States for a minimum of one week but this time The Oscar Committee has eased the criteria and has allowed the film which got released on OTT to contest as Theatres were shut due to lockdown.
