Attendees to the Oscars will not be required to present confirmation of COVID-19 immunization.

The Academy Awards in 2022 are just over a month away, and while the event will undoubtedly be memorable for its surprises and snubs, one item will be missing: Vaccinations against COVID-19.

According to a source, everyone attending Hollywood’s biggest night will not be required to show proof of immunization.

On March 27, nominees, presenters, and stars will assemble at the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles to honor the best and brightest in film. According to the Hollywood Reporter, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences will require attendees to present a negative PCR test or a negative fast antigen test on the day of the ceremony.

The SAG Awards and the Critics Choice Awards, on the other hand, will both require full immunization status this year.

The Screen Actors Guild listed its COVID-19 protocols for its awards ceremony on its website, along with the statement, “All ticketed attendees will be required to show proof of vaccination plus booster shot (if eligible), proof of negative lab-based COVID-19 PCR test within 48 hours of event, and negative antigen (rapid) test the day of the event.”

The Critics’ Choice Awards will be held on March 13th. “We will be 100 percent vaccinated and expect a negative PCR test within 48 hours of the event,” Joey Berlin, COO of the Critics Choice Association, told THR of the organization’s vaccine criteria. I’m not going to bring folks to a show where they won’t feel safe.”

The academy requires all of its staff to be vaccinated. The Oscars will also adhere to LA County’s health department rules, which require attendees to be either vaccinated or have a negative test result before attending an indoor or outdoor “mega event.”

The Academy has yet to make their coronavirus policy for the Oscars event public. The show’s organizers should expect reaction, according to a source who spoke to THR.

Last year’s ceremony was unusual in that face coverings were not required during the live ceremony, but all 170 guests were ordered to wear masks when the cameras weren’t rolling.

On Tuesday, the nominees for the 2022 Academy Awards were revealed, with numerous fan favorites vying for the famous golden statuettes.

Kristen Stewart will compete against Nicole Kidman (“Being the Ricardos”) and Olivia Colman (“The Lost Daughter”) for her part as Princess Diana in “Spencer.”

“The Power of the Dog” and “Dune,” respectively, received 12 and 10 nominations, with performers Andrew Garfield, Jesse Plemons, and Javier Bardem receiving nods.
