It will be possible to nominate works that were broadcast live on TV or viewing platforms such as “Netflix”.With regard to the screening of films, it is allowed during the quarantine period to send internet links or DVDs, while the studios usually organize special shows invited by the jury members. The Oscars Awards Committee, which is usually distributed two months after the Golden Globe Awards, has not announced any change in its work system.

This festival was canceled due to the epidemic, but it kept its matches even without organizing a party, contented with viewing films online for the jury.(AFP)
