The Oscars reportedly will not require attendees to wear masks during the awards show because it is being treated as a television or film production.
Fox News reports:
A virtual meeting featuring Academy representatives, nominees and studio and personal publicists, which took place earlier this week, revealed that due to the fact the awards show is being held at the famed Union Station in downtown Los Angeles — and is being treated as a television or film production — masks will not be required for folks who appear on camera during Sunday’s telecast, according to Variety.
Attendees will have had to pass at least three coronavirus tests prior to the event and undergo a temperature check before admittance.
The red carpet experience will be different, with only three photographers allowed.
Hollywood director Steven Soderbergh is producing the event and says masks will play a “very important role in the story.”
“If that’s cryptic, it’s meant to be,” he said during a recent press conference. “But that topic is very central to the narrative.”
Oscars producer Jesse Collins said, “The impact of Covid-19 will be highlighted throughout the show and masks will play a very important role in the story that the ceremony is trying to convey.”
When not on camera, attendees will be required to wear masks because apparently, COVID-19 only affects those who are not being filmed.

Nose-Only Masks Are the Latest Invention from Researchers to Fight COVID While Eating
Mexican researchers have created a mask to be worn on your nose while you’re eating and drinking to decrease the risk of catching COVID-19.
A Reuters report states the researchers believe the nose mask will provide “some” protection from the virus while eating meals. They say removing masks to eat and drink leaves people vulnerable to catching the disease.
According to Johns Hopkins University in the U.S.A., cells that give people a sense of smell are a key entry point for coronavirus, making nose coverings like these important.
However, the World Health Organization (WHO) recommends people wear a face mask that covers the nose, mouth, and chin.

This isn’t the first ridiculous concept developed in order to enable people to wear masks while eating. The Daily Caller points out that last year, an Israeli company created a mask with a “lever-operated opening” that can open while diners take bites and then close while they chew.
How long will it be until Dr. Anthony Fauci and the CDC advocate for double nose-only masks to be worn while dining?
BUSTED: NYT Reporter Attacks Non-Mask Wearing Republicans, While Not Wearing A Mask
2020 has brought out a level of hypocrisy in liberals such that there needs to be an invention of another word that means “so much hypocrisy” that it makes regular hypocrisy look mild in comparison. Enter, Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist for the New York Times, Matthew Rosenberg. Rosenberg is also a CNN national security analyst who gained notoriety for his writings promoting the Russiagate hoax to the Trump-hating mainstream media.
In another attempt to bully Republicans and make conservatives look bad, Rosenberg’s efforts backfired. Tweeting from an event for a Republican, he posted a photo of a ‘Trump 2020’ pin alongside a ‘Vote Marjorie’ pin and wrote, “Souvenirs from a night spent packed into a room with Marjorie Taylor Greene and a crowd of her most devoted supporters in Dalton, GA. Masks very much optional – and unworn. As Taylor put it, she’s for ‘the unmasking of America.”
Forced to sit amongst the non-mask-wearing Republicans and Trump supporters who sat in front of a ‘God Bless Our Nation’ flag, Rosenberg expressed his contempt for their behavior. As he furthered the fear-mongering with his tweets, and his “sanctimonious display and attempts to smear Greene and her supporters” there he sat…NOT wearing a mask.
Photos from Green’s campaign account reveal Rosenberg sitting amongst the very crowd he chastises for not wearing a mask, while not wearing a mask. As The National Pulse reports, “The double-standard speaks to the mainstream media’s willingness to peddle blatant lies in an attempt to smear Trump-supporting Republicans” is exactly right.
